Let Us Not Wait For Death

Let us not wait for death
Let us run towards it with arms wide open
For the flower that fades, first blooms
Let us sprint towards it, on our toes
As Bolt does towards the finish line
Let us fly towards it with our wings flapping vigorously
As Icarus did towards the sun
Let us rage against it
As Gandhi did against violence
Let us revolt against it
As the queen of Jhansi did against the Raj
Let us smile at it
As a lover does at its love
Let us not wait for death to come and claim our lives
Let us claim it with glory and in style
Let us rule over it
And leave our mark in eternity
Let us die with such greatness
That even after we are dead, our deeds keep us alive.
