Birthday short poem

Photo by JFXie

On birth, crying makes our entry
On death, silence marks our exit
In between our birth and death
turmoils all the while exist

We celebrate Birthday with pomp and excitement
Trauma of life preceding the birth day are kept in cold storage
Uncertainties in life post the birthday celebration is not thought of

Birthdays advances our age
while life span slowly shrinks

None will have the fear of death while celebrating birthday
All will enjoy the birthday celebration with feeling of eternity

While travelling we count the Mileage mark to ascertain how much Time is required to reach the destination
While celebrating our Birthday we don’t think of our final destination as we feel journey of life is eternal
Post the Birthday celebrations we realise we are moving towards the final destination and that is death

Birthday celebration will make us believe albeit temporarily that we live forever
