Life is Death – © 1972

A free form piece about being separated from your soul. This is kind of a follow-up piece to “Gone”, same subject. Written in Vietnam. Written in my old “Hippie Style”.

Life is Death – © 1972

Life
is Death
without Life.

Simple, you say –
i mean life of the soul
of the inner man
my soul is gone
though not dead
i know not which is worse
to die
or to wish you had
i wish a bullet
or a bomb
would remove
the decision
from my hands
but, only I
can give permission
for my own
death

Life
is Death
without Life.
