When Am Gone... - Poem by Oluko George

When am gone,
Sweet agony will flourish at home

Sweet agony will flourish at home,
Just because am gone

just because am gone,
Christ will be called

Christ will be called,
because am DEAD and gone!

[Dedication to all kids who don't know of death]

    When we are all gone..time remembers what we etched in its indedible memory..etched in the book of love, anecdotes that many will share..just share.
    when we are gone is by no means game over!
