When I Found Myself Dead - Poem by Rahman Henry

When I found myself dead in my dream
I was of 41 only and 64 is yours
You were happy enough to
Find a way for remaining crowned till '41
Have you ever found yourself dead
In any of your dreams? Never, I know,

You are forgetful of death. No king I'm,
Thanks God! Rather, I'm one of them
Who seem as if poor but kings of the kings
In fact. That's called the poets. The poets-
Who know the past, present and future
Who know about mortals and immortals

Tonight, again I'll find myself dead or alive in my dream
When Pharaoh, Hitler and Mussolini are but dust, in real.

    Poignant and insightful self-realization, very exacting and precise. 'Tonight again I will find myself dead or alive in my dream' Whichever it is cannot be known until either awakening or not from sleep. Profound. Thank you for sharing. RoseAnn (Report) Reply
