Gaol Of Flesh

Poetry By: TahmeedNabi

Who knows what goes on in the afterlife? Who knows how lonely it is?

Struggling and suffering

In the chains of my own flesh.

I'm lethargic and exhausted,

But my mind feels very fresh.

I try lifting my fingers,

They're the easiest by far.

But lifting even dainty things,

Felt like lifting a car.

I'm trapped in my own body,

A prisoner of my bones.

This darkness is eternal,

And I'm crushed by heavy stones.

It's lonely and its dank in here,

And my body is made of lead.

If I knew that it would be this bad,

I'd have been cremated instead.
