Like a vegetable, he lay for a fortnight
Moaning & groaning in pain
Calling out to someone in his inaudible voice
Holding long conversations with invisible people!
As time passed..
With a great effort a word or two he could
Anger & irritation reflected his frustration
His vision he had lost
No control over his body he had
His hands & legs like a newborn babe’s
He lay helpless
Suffering his ‘ Karm’–
(The arbitrator of our final destination)
That spares no one!
Twisting & turning in immense pain was..
The greatest challenge for him
Silently & helplessly we watched him suffer
Neither doctors nor medicines could ease his suffering
His agonised tortured expression
The silent vacant look
All pinpointed his anguish
His mind & body no longer co-operated
He felt madness ruling his mind
For mercy & death, he implored
Yearning for forgiveness for..
All his unbelievably petrifying ‘karm’
To God, he cried out all in vain
But Karm, the ruler & the judge of all life
Did take his ‘pound of flesh’
Before the sinner was allowed to..
Take his last deep breath and..
Fall into a peaceful slumber eternally!
‘Karm,’ the supreme ruler of our final destination….
Is the decider of our ultimate ‘terminus’!
It makes each one of us pay for-
All our wrongdoings depend on–
How full our pot of ‘karm’ is!
It alone has the key to open–
The shackles of sin—
We have chained ourselves with!
