Do's and Do's
3:00 AM: I shouldn't have woken up
At such an ungodly hour,
But who am I to decide what's ungodly,
When some people think I am God myself?
I don't know why they call me "Grim Reaper,
I am not grim, I don't want to be grim,
I don't want to reap either,
I just... I just want to do things that I love,
Speaking of which, let me check
What my to-do list holds for the day.
1) 7:59 AM: Spare Mr. D'Souza's Soul;
I don't know whether I need to do this
For him, or for his family, or for myself,
But I guess I need to cut some slack,
Maybe I will come back for him tomorrow,
But today, let him be free.
2) 11:23 AM: Practice Smiling;
I would need a huge mirror,
But I don't think that should be a problem,
Rather, the problem is to try and smile,
Smile like the days when I was a human myself,
Maybe that would stop people from calling me "Grim"?
3) 6:04 PM: Watch the Sunset;
I need to stop sleeping off after lunch,
When was the last time I watched a sunset?
I have heard humans of the new age
Talk about sunsets being enchanting,
I need to see what the fuss is about, I need to remind myself of the magic.
4) 12:15 AM: Scare the Stray Dogs;
What is it with dogs and late nights?
Why do they have to start an orchestra right when
All of us need a good night's nap after a long day?
Yes, I need sleep too, if you were in my place,
You'd know how it feels to collect souls since and for eternity.
Wait, what time is it?
How is it 7:58 AM already?
Wasn't it just 3:00 AM seconds ago?
Nevertheless, right on time for
The first task on my to-do list for the day.
