Denouncing Death

Every -moment -suffering nails deep in

The pain burns the hope

To amorphous grains.

The distance measures

The minimum for life and death.

The pain reads alphabets of past

Life history extends beyond the capture

To extinguish the flame of light.

Time waits to snatch the living image

The denial wind fights the battle.

Life converges to death

Through the tunnel of suffering.

Amongst the  immovable wall of silence

Certainly it is the creator’s pitfall for the

Billions of living cells and the genome content.
