Treasure Island

kipper Stagg

(6th April 1957 / Earth)


Was it not enough?
Did he not suffer quite as much as you’d wanted?
Was all of this folly just what you’d needed?
Had he not witnessed all ill's of men and was his despair taken
Doomed to fall from grace and die for sin of man, an outcast
In an un-caring world!
Was it his fate? Did he ask for all he had been given?
Or was it thrust upon him against his will?
He’s told “I am light and Love” so why must he suffer?
Crucified but not between two thieves,
Yet no one to wrap his body in fine linen and grieve.
No mother to kiss his feet when all is done
No one there to tell him he’s the loving son.
“The first shall come last and the last shall come first! ”
So why was he always last?
Was it your plan to see him suffer?
Did you enjoy watching him cry?
Have you compassion?
Or is that just a lie?
He had feelings, most of them pain.
Did you enjoy watching him hurt?
Or was it all just a game?

    I try to understand but I am not sure I do it well..I feel someone dying alone and in pain and your heart screams out, revolting at some kind of fate or maybe even god, you question life itself and cry of its unfairness (might have been right?) .But I think (forgive my dare) this person's life was not in vain, he left someone here to cry and dearly remember about his name, his face, even his pain..and maybe this remaining person with all the cry and hurts inside, got to became an open heart bit nicer, more understanding of others, hopefully bit kinder with himself too, to let his smile to get out and wider here and then.. great poem, filled with the raw pain comming straight from heart, got also straight to mine,10, thank you very much for share.

If I should die, think only this of me:

That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
