Knowledgeable short poem

Photo by Dashu Pagla

I am UNaware that Knowledge is so deep that it can’t be measured
I thought the little knowledge that I gained is as huge as the universe
I felt none could match my intelligence
I believed that I can make others dance to my tunes
Ego in me rose to the level of sky and beyond
I cared damn to the very existence of God
I never respected the opinion of others
I laughed when my grandson asked me to carry umbrella while walking in the scorching Sun
I stepped out disregarding little kids advise and in matter of seconds I fell down with my head reeling
Due to brain hemorrhage I lost the thinking power
In one stroke God showed his true powers and made me lie speechless in the bed
I died without realising my identity
One who feels matchless in knowledge
will die bankrupt without knowledge
