My First Death

My First Death

Came with a beat

Went with a breath


Saw it take

But didn’t get


Tears Flooded

Wet n dry

Real n fake

Known n nay

Left the body

Lifeless it struck

Lump of flesh

Corpse it lay


No reason needed

Sofar man pleaded

Fathom - it’s deaf and dumb

Did its work

Left body numb


Some stayed still

Some looked afraid

Another soul has freed

Another body is dead


Many eyes I saw tear

Some were real

Some were mere


When I stood

Words came from my

Soul to his

“May rest in peace”
