Death - the wait

Uh oh...another day went by and it didn't come yet! Some extremely wise people have assured me that it will come one day, no one knows when. I must say people don't give death the kind of love it deserves. The nice dude that death has made us a promise that it will come ...and in today's treacherous world if there is someone who makes a promise and definitely intends to keep it then I must say that I definitely respect this chappie.

I am reminded of an incident in college when I was listening to what the prof was saying with my eyes closed. There have been other occasions I must admit, when I have only watched and pretended to hear... but those were rare occasions when a lecturer turned out to be a beautiful woman. Now the incident that I am currently recounting was one where an elderly gentleman was saying things which my ears could aptly pick up without necessitating any interference from my eyes. Anyways, the reason why I bring this up is coz this professor asked me suddenly,"Are you dead or dying?". He just wanted to make sure that I hadn't dozed off. Now I did open my eyes and gave him a nod to reassure him that he wasn't as boring as he thought he was.

Interestingly, I just thought to myself...we are all dying every minute....we keep dying till we are actually dead. It's just another way of looking at things. I mean we say we are alive and living, we hardly say we are dying, though in a way, living and dying are the same thing. If we make birth our reference point then we are living and if we make death our reference point then we are dying...but both are basically the same thing. One defines from where we are coming and the other talks about where we are going.

Yet, as I mentioned earlier, people don't really seem too happy with this chap. They prefer to say they are living. Never mind, let them have it their way. Death doesn't have an ego you know; even if you neglect it completely and don't want to have anything to do with it, still it will come to you. It loves you!'s waiting for you!
