"It has to be another"

The question was cast
Whom do you want to kill?
If given a chance to kill.
I didn’t pause, and cried out, it’s me, and it’s me!
Coz and only because, a life half and more done
can be relived and anew, so I reckoned.

So I could, “do not the
things that went wrong and the things that I did wrong
knowing, and in ignorance blissful,
love and love more the ones who loved,
thank more the ones who lend hand,
and smile a fiddling- smile at the ones who kicked,
go places that I always wanted to go
and be away from the chaos”.

But alas!
Came the reply, “thou shall not kill thyself”.
And it has to be another.

You don’t need to kill yourself to relive anew, do you?
If you are so keen on it, you can assign me with the task
since ‘it has to be another’. But the problem is I faint at
the mere sight of blood!

But alas! came the reply,
'Thou art a fool to think
there is a second life!
Know thee that what is done
cannot be undone
That life once lived is once
and for all'.

@ Jyothi,

Come on a rookie just trying something that is all.
Certainly I ll check your poems.

@ Arun
Hoping to
Cleanse oneself is better than murder, isn't it so Arun?

@ Balan
"And when the earth shall claim your limbs, then shall you truly dance".

Then by the same yardstick this line must be of a fool- who thinks he can dance without the limbs.!

I was trying nothing philosophical and only a trope.

@ KPJ,

Yes indeed that is a possibility , mere mortals we are. But then is there any limit to fanatsise a bit?

anilkurup said...

@ Heavenly muse,

I do agree!
