170×170 day 19 19.5.15

There comes a time in life, when we may realize

Things that we have been holding on to

Were never that precious for us,

We just kept holding on to them

Like vines stay wrapped around the tree

Long after they are dead

The tree never realizes that they are dead

Once they bloomed, bore fruit but that was past

Now their skeletons, lifeless just hang from branches

Waiting for a strong breeze, pouring rain or time

to slowly remove them from their body.

A tree can only wait for nature to take steps,

We on the other hand can help ourselves

By leaving those lifeless things on ground

Before we move on in path of life…

Why keep these lifeless things in life?

When there is so little space for living?

Their place is not wrapped around a living being,

They too deserve to be liberated,

To be returned to where they belong,

So they may take the form of living again,

Maybe in some other land, other ground.
