If The Flames Do Not Turn Your Bones Into Ash

Rating: 4.8
If the flames
do not turn your bones into ash
your bones will rot
deep in the ground
but only for Them
for You'll come around
and as They're carving into stone
You may walk again
through countless fields
and endless roads
They will remember you

I favorited this awesome poem. If I had the power, I would make this Poem of the YEAR! ! ! This is top flight writing--worthy of being called LITERATURE and placed in an anthology of poetry for a college class.

Another comment from Write Out Loud I wrote on that poetry website " The poem ending is my attempt at a William Blake style of writing." the comment left was: " Blake will be happy as he reads this Clive, I really enjoyed reading this"

This poem has a special attraction for me as I often contemplate our mortality, its consequences and significance. I look forward to reading more Thank you for this, "

I put this poem on the poetry website Write Out Loud here's a comment " I really like this. I should never have read it more than once." my reply: " I originally put this poem on poem hunter and people almost over analysed it which was fun to read but society broke down, entire crops were lost..."

Well I guess I see this simply as the fact that if your bones do not turn into ash you will become one with the earth and return over and over again...a form of rebirth...you will be reborn and walk the endless roads and countless fields over and over again as another...something?
