Dead Man - Poem by anthony ruben lee taylor

who am I
I am the man that was killed
not by murder not by homicide
suicide did the trick
suicide was the answer to all my problems
only because of the simple fact that
someone else would have in a long run
so that is why it had to be done
and though I am going straight to the ground
it is not worth it but I didn't realize it
til' I was cursed to spend the rest
of my life walking the earth
I am still a
'Dead man'
