Sophocles perished long ago,

But his legacy did not,

His masterpieces make us cry,

Not less but a lot!


I wish I could ask Sophocles,

Why he had written “Oedipus the King”!

A tragedy that seems to tear the heart off!

Giving pain as that of the death’s sting!


Sophocles will continue to live on,


Future will revive him from the era bygone!
