Chronicle of Life by Aditi Anvita

Erasing solitude,

Beings bond,

The chatter in homes,

Their heart oozes,

The time goes on,

Voices become feeble.

Steering towards

Mortal’s fate,

No guide aids

That ultimate,

One finds a trail,

In fixed vitality.

The untold words

And incomplete wishes

One fulfills ahead,

Sculpting essence

With Abundance

One grows old.

Glamorizing present,

Interpreting dreams,

Winning over uncertainty

Isn’t a garden walk,

Time slips like sand,

One exits from life.

    Aditi’s poem summarizes mortality and the notions we carry as humans. We are born to die yet spend a lifetime fearing death, the most expected outcome. We connect and bond with others like us, growing out of one home into newer ones, basing our identities upon the relationships we build, and forgetting that alone we come, alone we must go. What lies in between is the lesson of living.
    Congratulations Aditi!
