Final Rest.

Final rest, humans exclaim!
Final resting place most important
Six feet of land it requires
But six feet of land sometimes missing.

Humans entitled a decent cremation
The resting place he entitled
In whatever circumstances can't be denied
A final journey in such calmness.

The vastness of sky we understand
But vastness of earth in personal terms
Always a point of controversy
Where highest walls and barbed wires
Obstructs the vastness, for a human being.

The vastness of sky we understand But vastness of earth in personal terms.....nowadays invasion is the natural process....nice sir
To have six feet of land to rest finally is every man's need.... In crammed places, it is not possible for everyone to have a personal space. In such situations at least there should be some parallel facilities for a man to have an honourable final departure! A thoughtful write!

This is the fact spelt out here as people are too materialistic to spare a small piece of land for the decent burial of holy human body.......nicely presented........thanks for sharing
Sometimes it is missing too. Last Mughal Emperor could not get so wrote, 'Do gaz jammee bhi n mil saki.....'. In my one poem i have i want to get my final sleep on the land which has heard my first cry. Thanks for share. REGARDS.
