Did Socrates die

a poem by Reginold Ajay Jacob, India

Did socrates die, I tell you, no,
Mortal, became immortal, you see
Death kills the coward,
Breath is no sign of life, you see.

Count not your life in breath you breathe ,
Count the principles, on which you stand,
Learn to speak up for the truth,
If you are quite who would stand.

You have no divine origin,
Socrates proclaimed the truth,
King got so ferocious,
Socrates life he took.

Yet king is forgotten,
Socrates still lives,
Truth lives forever,
Not the mean kings.
R. A. Jacob
