Have You?

Have You?

A Poem by Cassiopia Summers
"

Have you ever wondered.....?

"
Have you ever wondered
where the dead spirits go?

Do they wander to and fro?

Have you ever wondered
if they're lost in another world?

Or are they stuck here nailed like a board?

Have you ever wondered
what it was like to die?

Whether or not your life literally flashed before your eyes?

Have you ever wondered
about their stories of life?

Did the have any kids, and a beautiful wife?

Have you ever wondered
what the last thought was to cross their minds?

Was it sad, happy, or a manifold of kinds?

Have you ever wondered
what it was to be a soldier?

Could it be the respect or that they wanted to lend a helping
shoulder?

Don't you wish to know what it's like?
I wish to take that hike,

but I guess it'll be awhile till I'm down at the bottom of...

My very own Grave.

Cassiopia Summers
Everyday I pass by a Graveyard to and from school, and each day I think to myself how these people lived, and why did they die. This poem was just something that popped up today.

Very well written, I feel that we all can relate to this poem!

I can relate-I used to live next door to a Victorian church with a graveyard, walked past countless funerals on my way to work. Never thought it was depressing though, more of a reminder of our final destination.

Nice piece, very emotive. I'm prone to bouts of Romanticism too, and you did a great job with this. Personally, I like to leave the questions unanswered. After all, if you have the answer to everything, what is left to ponder and muse?

"Have you ever wondered/what the last thought was to cross their minds?/Was it sad, happy, or a manifold of kinds?"-Very nice line. Personal.

This is very thought provoking, and of course I have thought about it many times.
Stirring write. Well done!
