Answer Me This

My life surpassed, fades long, yet fast
(Below the dirt, my coffin's cast)
Despite how deep, however vast
I'll dwell inside that vacant mass
It's only He that understands,
The One that gave me Poet's hands
So tell me please, if you can-
How from dust arose a Man?

I like your words here, the ryhme and meter are pretty tight and I like the line "The One that gave me Poet's hands" -my favorite! Good job! MC
