My Life Poem by John Dadzie

My Life



My life is now in shutters, my dream has been captured by the anonymous captain of my soul, who sails me straight to the north pole.my heart becomes cold, so i stand and shiver besides the river that carries my soul, with all these i tend to ask my self, why is this? where did i go wrong? Was it the devil in me? .but they tend to be rhetorical but i need answers, or are these the questions i should ask, is it the fault of my creator? Or it is the curse from ancestor? so here i stand beside the river like how a dead plankton, doesn't know were it goes but follows the current, is how i have become.my faith is weakened my disbelieve is strengthened, is life real or its just seem to be real or life is your own fairytail, like alice, i wonder in wonderland, strange things i see, just like in the sea were strange animals dwell, thinking makes my head swell.am i ok will i be ok, or when is it going to be ok are the questions i ask my creator.oh! My world, oh my life so here i stand, ready to fight, so i may attain the height.

I liked the theme with captain at the beginning. Rolls and flows well. Second half feels like a prayer. I liked this poem, read some of mine!
