Cry Not For Me

My heart is in pain for what
I have seen and heard,
Dogs eat dogs and ants  eat ants;
The moon turns dark;
The sun spits fire;the sky coughs blood,
Leaves are dry,seas are dry and the soil fumes;
What I see has made me blind,
What I hear has made me deaf;
I am a blind man in your midst,
Am I part of your world?,
I love death more than these,
soon at dawn I will be gone,
for I am not part of it;
Your ways are not my ways;
I`m done;
Cry not for me,for I go to rest.

    Powerful and disturbing images, if we plug into Gods spirit we will see glimpses of the next world all around us. You can then dream new dreams and fly like an eagle, with strength and spirit renewed. Thanks so much for stopping and commenting on my poem.

    Oh Lord, this is so sad. It made me want to cry. I felt what you is saying, this is why I wanted to shed tears. Very well written.
