Ghost

GHOST

by Okpala Chiazokam Chibuikem

Just wondering how it feels to be a Ghost

I would be able to roam the nights

Devoid of fear

For I would be the unknown

I will make part of your tales

And your thoughts too

I will make you clinch to your beds

I wouldn’t need to toil

For I would float upon bounty.

Just wondering how it feels to be a Ghost

I will be devoid of emotions and feelings

Worth and class

Value and entitlements

The cares of this life

Would worry me no more

The thrills of humanity

Would mean nothing anymore.

No more do this or do that

Be this or be that

For I would be eternal

Journeying for the rest of what is.

Maybe that is why they do say

“Rest in peace.”
