Death Can Cure - Poem by Emmanuel Adekunle

if death can cure
my emotions
i would have cared
to borrow the death
that killed my friend
and be gone by now
if nothing bothers me
like past memories
and present circumstances
i would be enjoying
the fleeting moment by now

when i was a christian
i couldn't thrive
(i knew that it was temporal)
though i am still a christian(just by its name)
the dark fingers linger for me
and withdraws everything i have
God i used to be found
of being a christian.
'Nothing shall separate me from the love of christ'
A sweet verse that gingers
my heart.
I gave away myself
And i could die without
achieving what i gave myself away to
I want to give up like a saint
and be worried no more
