I do not want to be mourned if I die
What did you know of me?
Were we friends?
Did we ever meet?
Nay, do not show pity
I did not quiver nor did I shiver when my time came
I took it like the man I was
Friends talk about how we met
The impacts I made in their lives
You were a friend of mine, but me not
Even strangers shed forceful tears
I have embarked on a journey that no one returns
Would you not let me enjoy my ride
Whilst you plan on how to embark on yours
I thought we were inseparable friends
Why the tears of me gone
You never know if I was sent away by Mother earth for a reason
If she was tired of me
Or I was worthy not of breathing
Lets see if God also doesn’t have a place for me up there
Then where do I deserve to be?

    “I do not want to be mourned if I die”
    From this first line, it can be gathered that the writer is not dead yet… Reading further, one can deduce that the writer went from being a person writing before dying to a person (or ghost) writing from the dead!

    Interesting piece though!

    Penastory keep up the good work.
