Death of a Soul, man




Copyright 2007 K. Omodele

At what point does a soul wither and drop?
Like rotten fruit from an ill-fated tree
The result of youthful intrepid plots
whose sole regal intent screamed, "LOOK! I BE."

What event led to the poor soul's demise?
Severed from his roots- a long stemmed Black Rose
Did volcanoes erupt in blood-fire eyes?
Time is a-grinding while youth decompose

    This is beautifully written. I hope you don't mind me asking, but what is the significance of the black rose?

  8. @Michelle and Iyabo. For me, Black Roses represent deep and intense beauty. This poem is about how some choices you make as a youth can affect the future.
