Final Shore

a poem by SIVAPRASAD V, India

Here lie those who walked before me
The ones who dreamt of better days
Sleeping undisturbed and unhindered
For no alarm or dream wakes them up

Alone are they not in the slumber
Egos and rivalries fill their chambers
Pride and envy sleep with them
The leveller brings them together

Stories of triumphs are reduced to bones
Snatched beauties are no longer theirs
Success built on lies grins at them
As they lie embracing the ultimate truth

All races and duels end here
And the meaningless tussles too
Competitors call it a day
As the safest haven beckons them

Every voyager’s final shore
And every mortal’s healing space
