Memento Mori

Mourners mourn each day
Like sunrise and sunset
They turn everything they get
Into something they hate
They fight with everyone and then regret
they forget, they may die someday

Live your life like
A flower that blooms
So lively and cheerful
Spreads love and laughter
Live your life like birds
chirp and tweeter
Always jolly and in high spirit
And in consonance with everything


Live your life like a leaf
Rustling in harsh weather
always holding on to tree;
they do not grieve
Even when they leave
Listen to
the silent thuds of wind
Always talking to you and telling you
To not walkway from life

Live your life like a kite
Flying in the open skies
Always attached to the string
Never forgetting about its origin
Flying where wind takes it
Without resistance


Live your life like a river
Making its own path
Cutting through stones and
carving ideas of future

Stop living your life of past
You do not belong there
Make good with every one you hurt
Make them count
those times you spent together
laugh out loud
every moment of your life


So before this candle loses its light
You must learn to live
So before this heart beats its last beat
You must learn to forgive,

Before you waste your life
full of accumulation
Share whatever you have
Before you leave everything behind
Meet as many people as you can
Greet everyone with love and sweets
And serve them your best dish


Take a bite of this life mouthful
When you are satisfied
Share it with those mournful
And make them happy as you are
Stop your cursing and stop your weeping
Stop your suffering from engulfing
Stop your disdain and regrets
Stop your loathing

Smile as much as you can
Do things that you like
Help someone in your way
Do not use foul play
Treat everyone with respect
And do not hurt others
For you are the one who will suffer


Be always joyful
And leave all your sorrows
Be always cheerful
Leave out your anger

If we were immortal
What would we do
We would’ve been the most pessimistic
thing alive there to
Breathing would’ve been meaningless
For we are alive, we die
For this life is a cycle
Every living being has born
and someday will die

  3. I loved and I agree with your words. My grandfather told me. “Never leave with anger or negative words spoken. Could be the last time we see someone. Leave with kind words and warm embrace. Need final memory to be kind and generous.”

      Yes!! Grandparents!!! I always like to seat and talk with them. I just love their company. Whenever I get chance, i talk with old people, whoever they are. The energy that they carry, the way they talk about things and life. 😊

      1. I agree. We need to listen. Our elder can teach us. They had lived.
