POETRY: When I die, may I not die

by Adedoyin Olumodeji

ERSATZ

Rivers flowing with glee,

Buried beneath souls, so deep,

Sun shining with glee,

Hidden within, hearts so deep.

 

Feel the dark passions,

Around you,

Happy expressions,

Dead inner yous.

 

Skeleton in my cabinet,

He’s smiling,

I’m wailing

Like I’m the one in the net.

 

Gathering through scattering,

Shutting souls,

To reach goals.

 

When I die,

May I not die.
