"Ego Waiting for death for many years. Born to die human beings. We all know that death will come one day. Is anyone able to conquer death? No one can conquer death Everyone has been waiting for death since birth. What is the fear of death? Death is a natural phenomenon As a child arrives on earth, there is a celebration of happiness in the family Just in case death is the celebration of happiness. One day the world will be there, but we leave the world. Our ego will end at the end of funeral prayers without Azan. The magnificent beauty of our form will blend into the ground. In a game of two days of false glory We are busy detailing hate We not here today. When the eyes are closed, no one is around us."
Waiting for death for many years.
Born to die human beings.
We all know that death will come one day.
Is anyone able to conquer death?
why do you stare at me so?
I know that it’s me you have come to take,
I can feel it’s my time to go.
"A LOOK AT LIFE-24 BY-SMRUTI RANJAN MOHANTY A look at life is incomplete Without a look at death A peep into its mystery It's science Language and chemistry No doubt Life is beautiful But death is still more beautiful More enchanting more bewitching For it makes life full and Gives once more a chance To look at life and go ahead In the path of eternity If life is a feast Death is sheer poetry An artist's dream Who makes an art of life If life is a sojourn Death is a station Where one gets down Look at himself and Prepares for the journey Anew and afresh To have a go at the destination Ultimate and inevitable The beauty of life Lies in a beautiful death Which puts an end To those toiling days Agonising nights The predicaments and contradictions The unfulfilled desires The negative emotions Acquisitive instincts Unrealised dreams and broken hearts Which hunt one all along And death makes the beast of burden A man once again But One has to prepare for it The way one plans and prepares To live a life The art of dying is more difficult Then the craft of living Living requires involvement Engrossment and a deep sense of attachment While dyeing needs nothing Only one has to look back And analyse the life He has lived The relationship He shared over the years One has to dive deep into life To understand The futility and fragility Of human relationship And its obvious limitations Bound by Time-space and causation A look into life Unbiased and unprejudiced Will show the way And put an end to all cravings And will prepare the mind and body To embrace the beauty of life With Ease And a smile on lips copyright@smruti ranjan November 2015"

"SOMETHING I LOOK AT-102 BY-SMRUTI RANJAN MOHANTY DYING A DEATH Oh my near and dear! don't stretch my life beyond nature's favour. When death is a certainty, why are you so reluctant to accept the reality? When hours and days are numbered of what use adding a few more? My body never listens to what i say, my mind is not with me, somewhere else. I am not the same I was, the battle is over, yet to fight the war. How long you will stretch my life and what for? Is a body having very little in it going to serve you and your purpose anymore? Don't drag me to the icy, I don't want to languish in pain waiting for a death so difficult to come by. I lived life to the full, let me live my last days as I wish with all that I loved and lived with. In open air and bright sunlight let me take my last breath in the midst of kith and kin, take the last few steps slowly and silently and feel the moment that stands between life and death. Don't put me on a ventilator, I never want to lie motionless enduring all the pain that comes my way, silently suffering with none of my friends hands and legs, eyes and ears to stand by. Imagine life on life supports, how horrible it is with organs after organs failing leaving me to witness my trusted friends dying one by one making me the sole survivor to endure the pain and agony with a few drops of tears oozing out of my eyes. My dear! death is a peaceful transition from one state of consciousness to another, our ignorance, desire and attempt to stretch it make it unnatural, unbearable, sad and pathetic. If you love me, let me die as such with the cool breeze and bright sunshine drenching the whole of me. Let me bid farewell to my beautiful world where I was loved and betrayed, smiled and cried, lived the whole of my life in hope and despair. ©smrutiranjan 14.9.2018"
