Live to Die or Die to live?

 

 

 

Should you Die to Live or Live to Die?

That’s a question you should bring to your mind.

And the fact is no longer seen as a lie,

That one would live after death, and bind-

With one’s own body and soul, and return alive.

 

The one who chooses the second one,

Then his job is pretty well done,

Little shall he suffer in this life,

Because the diamond isn’t ever disposed away,

Once it's worth is realized by the trained eye.

 

The suffering is, compared to the returns, nothing at all,

As our god’s the one whose prize has no bounds.

Our death, being the worst of our fears, can still be-

The one which wise ones would die for- as they see-

The rewards hidden behind the curtain of pain,

The rewards of the ones who, in the way of God are slain.

 

I wish people don’t stop in their journey to their reality,

And don’t get trapped in the net of false luxury.

Pausing too often to get a glimpse of the false castle’s treasures,

Hoping to get as much as he can, only to lose it in the end!

The one dying to live in this world has to die one day,

So is the one living a luxurious life, without any say…

 

The real life, well hidden, is behind the curtain of death,

The real treasures, the deeds we do, are our true wealth.
