O' Mankind, where to all you race,
Death is all in the end, that awaits,
What's with the name and fame you crave,
Will you take them to your grave?
The people who praise you too
shall die one day,
So, what's the use chasing it
Flip through all history pages,
They too walked, where we walk today,
And when we are gone, there'll be others,
Like us, they too will race others.
Trying to reach the goal everyday they dream,
But, death is only what they'll get for real.
Be it Cleopatra, Richard Burton or Taylor Elizabeth,
Tell me, who's come back from their grave?
