“Rise”

Standard

Oh you, wake up, time is running out,

The end is coming,

You must awake and move on,

The stars are trailing and the night is gone,

You must do your unfinished work, time is running short,

Flashes of gold and jewels are there,

Oh there is a peal and a sparkling stone, leave it there,

It’s a derail in your path, a distraction,

Oh fool, open your eyes, see the truth,

Let go of the oblivion and let the precision make sense to you,

Do whatever is left; you won’t be back this way again,

There are no chances, no second life,

This is it, this is it,

Make do with it and hurry because the end is near.

  1. The pessimism in this poem shines through. But it carries such an important message. While we get stuck in the realities of this world, we really forget that death is probably just standing round the corner. Good job Saima!
