Clashing, crashing, the soul it baits
Alive and awake at the pearly gates
Wondering
What happened with my life
Stumbling
Across others waiting for their fates
Humbling
-
Living life, thoughtless vices on my mind running
Shackles on my demons never worked, gotta live cunning
Watching the queue moving up. How am I to speak
When I face my judgement later. Gotta be released
-
Did I live how I should, not sure, but I could
If I get a second chance, I know I gotta push
-
But reality got a hold of me
Constant desires surrounding me
Choking me
Its hard being good in this world
Gotta admit
From left to right swirled
Always conflict
-
Tried moving outta the neighbourhood
But it pulls me back
Like it’s got a bait and hook
Attached on my back
An easier life, can’t say black or white
But living in the grey provided for them and I
-
Learning the ways to make a living
Never knew I would take the living
Slowly it consumed my soul and blackened
To the point my mind died and mangled
My morality, integrity and honour
Personality changed, become a gunner
Can I really change if I get a chance?
Not sure
In life, I never had a chance
-
What makes it different now
Would I be different now
Second chance. I’m begging now
Would I really get it now?
Now facing judgement for my life
It gave me thought of strife
Not sure I will survive
Out there, with not a light
I close my eyes and then
Accept that I have sinned
I Probably won’t repent
So let it all just end

    I loved the tone of this! Or maybe the rhythm, either way, I enjoyed reading it.

  • Aphoticabout a year ago

    Great poem and questions many of us probably have. Well done!

    Fantastic poem, Mohammed! I loved so many things about this - the message (so deep), the structure, the flow, the wonderful word choices. The ending was so powerful 🥺❤️ Amazing work!

  • Roy Stevensabout a year ago

    I agree with Heather. The rhythm is very powerful and adds so much to the theme. And the theme is worthy of the effort you put into this, nice work Mohammed!

  • Heather Hublerabout a year ago

    This felt so much like performance poetry too. I could feel the rhythm carrying it and raising the thoughts and momentum. And reality is really good at changing intentions and forcing us to compromise. Well done :)
