“Life is unreal

                      And Death is certain” –

          Reflect on this

                      O heart of mine

          and think not evil

                      to anyone.

          Our prosperous paunch,

                      nourished with care,

                                we think is ours

                                            for eternity!

                                But the beasts of graveyard,

                                            the ghouls and the vultures,

                                they wait for it

                                            knowing it is theirs!




[Tamil poem by  PATTINATHAR (10th century A.D)  rendered into English by Sage TGN]
