ASHES TO ASHES

They say the soul leaves your body when you die
Mine has left already
Am I dead?
Your blows blew it away
And now it floats
Silently
Like a silent scream looking for a home
But there is no home
Its destiny is alienation
Like the dust
Ashes to ashes
Dust to dust
Deep in the dark soil it settles
Dug in as you dug my grave

    Bless you. Thankyou so much. No, these words do not reflect my present state, but I have known what it is to feel like this. I often write poetry about things that have been my experience because I like to represent in my pietry all the things that might affect human beings. The Ashes to Ashes thing was on my mind anlot at one time because I nearly died from my cancer. I actually livebthose words, and find them very beautiful. It is exactly how we all end up. I am so glad that you liked the piem. Thankyou so much for reading and comnenting. I so appreciate your kind words.
