The devils die last

Give me back my innocence, I wasted in the journey When blood trickled down my last breath, Inquisitively, I have been asked..are you dead? So that’s why they call me devil as I die last.. I never cried tears; it was the toxins that came out. I never exhaled air it was the repentance of my soul…still cursed, still starved. Condemned by my miseries, I still live Spitted upon by my own sweat…… Yes! I still live in me, Cause the devil dies last.

Although there's obviously no link yet through out my reading of this poem I had Salman Rushdie's 'Satanic Verses' on mind! A soul stirring read...and yes .. the devil dies last! sigh!
