Clashing, crashing, the soul it baits
Alive and awake at the pearly gates
What happened with my life
Across others waiting for their fates
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.

    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!

    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 :)
