[NaPoWriMo Poetry- 30] “Epilogue”

There is nothing else to say, It was meant to end this way. The sailor has reached his shore, and beyond  this cliff, there are roads to travel no more. The end will be abrupt, meaningless and absurd. So will be our lives, so will be this poem. for death is the bargain for a …

Pour a gentle drop of ambition, chop and dice your arrogance and procrastination, and add a dollop of fresh motivation. Saute your skills and talent, but deglaze your biases and prejudices prevalent.
