*Sagar Tikoo

The blind man accuses

The world of being dark.

The deaf man blames

The world of being mute.

For that is how us

Humans are.

We are but a speck in our star system.

Our starsystem is a speck in the galaxy.

Our galaxy is a speck in the universe.

Our universe is a speck in the realm of Existence, thousands of parallels scrunched together.

And Existence is an oxymoron:

We are only smart

When we notice how stupid we are.

We only matter.

When we realize how insignificant we are.

Our life is only fulfilled.

When we realize how much is wasted.

Existence is an oxymoron.

So what are we?

Do we exist right now?

Or do we only truly exist when we are nonexistent.

When we are dead.

Do we only live when we die?

Another young poet, indeed!! Our younger writers probably do not know how much comfort they bring with the hope for a brighter future.

Very thoughtprovoking indeed. Yes, you are right young Sagar, existenec really is an oxymoron. In the Gita lord Krishna tells Arujuna to fight the war against his kin and not be afraid of killing them for "they are already dead". Let us not forget there are the dead who live on and the lving who are dead for all practical purposes.
