Immortal Online


Neither abridged
Nor partially baked
We write who we are
With precise time and date

Opined, aware
Unclogging mind as we pen
Calling dud a dud
Or praising something 10 on 10

Our presence is feeble
Our impact high
Bane or boon -
Internet made our lives glorified

At 65, we might ponder
Why we wrote so mundane?
After we're gone, our children will flip posts
To ease off their pain

Preserved for eternity
Our words will soothe and tell
A diary of ups and downs
But a life spent very well

I was reading 'The Diary of a Young Girl' which has impacted millions years after Anne Frank died. And a thought came to my mind - All bloggers are immortal online. Our posts can bring gush of emotions not only to us but to all those who read our blogs. It's our online diary many can connect with. It widens our existence and preserves our emotions for eternity. What do you all think?

  6. There were many reasons why I started blogging and some u have penned down...lyrically. It was fun reading it. But u r excellent in composing there is no doubt about that.
    Hey Saru...I was away from the blogging scenario a real long time. But hopefully I am back now. Have done two different posts on the same subject. The tones r different though. Would you be kind enough to grace my blog with ur presence....

  17. Immortal online... that's a lovely way to put it! Only bloggers can understand what blogging means to us, others think it's a way to kill time, and I feel for them.

  18. This is so true! In the past I have been criticized by my family for writing stuff that should be kept (in their opinion) hush-hush. But the 2nd para of your poem describes who we truly are, the ones that call a spade a spade!
