Weekly Photo Challenge: Future Tense – The ‘Future Tense’ Of Death

You say my life is over

You say I’ve had my run

I say you don’t know anything

My second term has just begun

You may have washed your hands off me

Stabbed me till I bled

But I know how to rise again

Reclaim my life from the dead

In the past I groveled

For your favors I begged

No more will you rule me

I will no longer be led

My first life I lived for you

Loving you to death

This second life

I will live for me

Savoring every breath

‘They’ say death follows life

That death  means ‘The end’

‘They’ don’t always know everything

Sometimes ‘Life’ can follow ‘Death’

Last week’s photo challenge was “Future Tense”.  I just got back to the desk after a fortnight, and loved the prompt. So this is my entry!  albeit a week late! Here are the other entries for this intriguing prompt.

I also  just discovered NaPoWriMo . It stands for national poetry Writing Month, and encourages bloggers to post a poem every day.  It starts today! That’s a huge coincidence …… Or maybe its WP gods way of nudging me out of my non- writing stupor. In any case, here it is. I am registering! I am not a good poet, and have too much on my plate right now, but what the hell! When the WP Gods nudges, one sits up and takes notice!!!! Right?

Wish me luck 🙂

    1. some stuff is not written for appreciation . Just for expression. This is one of those. Written at a particularly bad phase. Thank you for the visit nevertheless.
