An ode to Life

Death is inevitable.
This journey will end.
Your body will breathe its last and wither,
But not your immortal spirit , never !

But you do die, in your lifetime.
Many a times. Many a deaths.

You die when you are weak.
You die when you are a coward.
You die when you doubt your self.
You die, slowly and painfully,
When you are inert and full of sloth,
Motionless, lifeless, afraid to go forth. 
When you say I can't, I can't, I can't !

But each such death must lead,
To a new life, 
A new beginning where,
Courage is Life! 
Strength is Life ! 
Self-belief is Life !
And you, bustling and brimming with energy,
Thundering ahead with the all the might your spirit can muster,
Are the embodiment of Life,
And in this lifetime,
Avow, to never ever give up, to never ever say die !

Dedicated to the Butterfly. I wait for it to spread its wings, and fly.
