I Am Dead Poem by Maureen Alikor


With your stray gaze
you stare at me
wondering why I chose this path
perplexed, I leave you
for I am dead

my deeds become stupefying to you
why sit over me and dialogue?
Why try to remodel my thoughts?
Know you not I live no longer
for I am dead

I remain in my solitary confinement
my past life gone sour
my slate wiped clean
I dare feats you wouldn't dare
I live above the world
though I sojourn here
I am dead to me

For mankind I came
to share love I was made
compassion flows in my blood
call me a crony,
you are right
call me wild,
you are close to the truth
for I am dead to me
but alive in Him
