After Death

11 Dec

By: Tony L. Jefferson, Jr.

After I die, I want to be dressed in an all black suit

With some new boots

While I’m drifting up to heaven

I don’t want no fears, no tears, and no sneers

Just cheers

Cause I’m finally going home

Cause earth is hell sometimes froze over

Full of shady ass bitches and trifling bastards

I wanna go where the realist have gone

To bask in the new sunlight of the truth

It’s easy to envision a world better than here

Cause this is no world where we’d like to live

We’re placed here as a test

Testing what?

I have no clue

I guess I’ll find out what’s true after death

    I really like this poem, heaven knows I have felt the same many times myself, it’s a universal feeling — I like the way you describe being dressed. My ‘ode’ to this subject involved more the songs I wanted played at my wake and how I didn’t want people to mourn but to celebrate.

    IF you ever feel like checking out some of my words on the page,
    is more poetry, stream of consciousness, etc. and
    is kinda more about what I do for a living, which is also a ‘creative’ field, but freelance, tv and film.

    I want to write a poem ‘response’ if that’s cool, will probably post on imuapress in a day or so, if you check back.

    I like exchanging ideas with other writers and writing riffs off each other’s stories, songs, words and love affairs with language, light and the other side of life.

    Keep writing! I like this one!
