Don’t Be So Serious, You Will Die Anyway

Lubaina Bahar | March 26, 2021
Don’t Be So Serious, You Will Die Anyway

Some scarred faces,

Some broken souls,

Some hidden tears,

Some defeated smiles.


Some trembling hands,

Some cramping legs,

Some aching hearts,

Some drowning thoughts.


Some sickening breaths.

Some pools of blood,

Some scattered dreams,

Some shattered plans.


Some endless pains,

Some relentless efforts,

Some pungent smells,

Some deafening alarms.


Some constant fears,

Some unbeatable sufferings,

Some damaged organs,

Some choking throats.


Some dripping fluids,

Some creepy noises,

Some cloudy decisions,

Some burnt out humans.


Some dead emotions,

Some silent screams,

Some sedated brains,

Some delirious minds.


You ask me why we keep them shut?

You ask me why we don’t let you in?


It is because you won’t stand a minute,

And you won’t ask for more

If we give you a glimpse,

Of what lies beyond these four walls…



Lubaina Bahar

Lubaina is a doctor by profession and a poet by heart. Working with thousands of patients and having witnessed thousands of stories of success and failure, life and death, she took up poetry as a form of expressing how she really felt. Her medical stories have been shared on her Facebook page called “Humans of Intensive Care”.


Lubaina believes that love and kindness are the only lifelines that will keep us going and not material things. In the pursuit of happiness, we sometimes become completely oblivious of our own being. And there comes a phase in our lives when we feel lost and stand clueless on a crossroads. For Lubaina this phase came in medical school when she tasted love, hatred, loneliness and a million other emotions and realized their importance for the first time. This was when pen and paper became her best friends and her heart bled poetry. She recently published her book of poems “The Voices in My Head” and has shared a link below to be read by those who are fond of poetry.
