CLOSE TO DEATH

(WRITTEN AFTER I MISSED BEING HIT BY A TRAIN BY MERE 2 SEC….)


Saw the face of death today

Smiling at me from a distance
The distance of time……
Two seconds to say
Sounds so less, right?
That made the difference of a lifetime
My life was running slower than me
My shadow was lagging behind…
I leaped to cross the tracks –
The tracks of my life
Saw death riding on a train shouting aloud
Coming close to end the journey of my life …
Saved by the hands of god,
I saw death evade me again
Time and again death come hunting for me,
To make me its next victim…
But till god is smiling watching me,
Death cannot touch me anytime soon,
But i know nothing- I am not god
Death is not the friend of god also
