You Will Never Die, “my Moses“ - Poem by Meshack Dasco

Since I was born and now I am getting old Your golden touch ravish my heart in whole. From the north to the south Your midas touch melts my icy dreams to flow. From the east to the west - Your heart of succor - my soul revives. I look to and fro in shadows but- Respite shines on me through and through. All grace. I respect - the womb that housed you, I rejoice with - the one who gave you boobs to suck, I repraise - the back that gave you anchor. All is mercy. ...But... Earth to earth, blood to blood, Sinew to bones, flesh on bones, You shall live to see the best of bests, And your eyes - shall see no double Your bones - shall be hard as diamond Your life - precious as saphirres and rubies. Ha! So shall thy end - boom glory like the galaxy And thy fate - remarkable in goodness for life.
