I'M Immortal - Poem by Benjamin Paa Willie

I am immortal
A demented
Guilt-free child
Voiced
I am immortal
And incompatible
So far
While turned
From a hand to another
Topsy-turvy
She fell in
A conversation
With a fellow
And spoke fondly
Of Einstein
Shakespeare
And other immortals
Liar
Demented child
Cursed to utter
Incompatibility
Voiced
The fellow
Hurt
She took
The way towards
The immortals
I am going
To the library
Voiced
A demented
Guilt-free child
There is a show
At the cinema
Laughing is good
For your health
Voiced
The fellow
Ah, you can
Go back to
Kindergarten
There is a lot of
Laughing
There too
Voiced
A demented
Guilt-free child

    To those who didn't get the point of this poem; the child I was talking about is 'A Good Book'. Just imagine any good book. it becomes immortalised like the message of the book. The Authors too, many times. An example is the Bible. If you didn't get what I said it means I am not good at conveying my message and I try to improve upon that. Thank you! (Report) Reply

    I don't think a child can truly be demented in nature.
    Perhaps this poem is the 'Wisdom of a Child'?

    Adults are conditioned by the world around them.
    Children are too young to know any better and see things how they are.

    Perhaps the child sees the foolishness of person
    The was a people see the foolishness of a dictator.
    Perhaps the 'Adults' are the other people and 'The demented child' is the dictator? I'm puzzled. (Report) Reply
