Dead man walking

He died with a song buried in him
Not enough day light for him to realise his dreams
His lyrics made him soar through the skies
but reality has chopped his wings
A second ago they seemed to flow,
a second ago the thoughts seemed to roll 
but then he galloped and choked on his words to death
his thoughts stuck behind his head
the lyrics and limericks were his company
his gift was his mellow heart
that roamed alone along the lands 
as an young man with an old soul trapped within
fear walked him through misery and people said
here is the dead man walking
He once left his faith with his gods 
whom he left in the far away lands
Under the lightening wrath god showered misery with his might
as a mere human beneath he held back with his will
Thor's hammer has hit him hard
he turned coocoo in his head
heaven knows that he will hit the dust with the rest
he kept singing gibberish as if no one is listening  
He kept singing to those who would hear him
he kept singing he is a dead man walking
and yet he died with a song buried deep within him
