The paper presents the comparative study of the poem Ode to Death by Daud Kamal and the Poem To Death by Sarojini Naidu. The present study tells the reality of life, which is the universal element on this earth. Life is a combination of misery and happiness. Every person has to face the hardships and sufferings in this temporary world. No one is total happiness in this world of uncertainty. Everyone is facing miscellaneous diseases and troubles. Death frees and liberates the person from these miseries of life. This death is not permanent. This is only a world from which everyone wants to get rid of it.The theoretical Frame Work of these poems is Existentialism by Jean-Paul Sartre. It is a theory that forces every person to get liberated through their own willingness. Existentialism is a faith and trust in which every person is responsible for determining his own purpose, not God. The findings of the study are uncertainty and distress in both old and young adults. Every person who is born will have to die one day. This world is transitory. It is not permanent, and man is mortal in this temporary world of existence. The recommendation of the study is Materialistic aspects.
