Dead man walking

Ever saw a dead man walking?
I know you would say 'NO'
But just for a while stop and look around
You can feel them grow

Hobbling and struggling for an inch
They try to live although dead
You can see them linger all around
But you just can’t see the invisible thread

Zipped feelings and ripped emotions
Inhumed in blood for long
Killing the GOD within, they live
Allowing the devil to grow strong

If still confusion is raging your mind
And you don't know where to go
Then place yourself in front of the mirror
And try to know the person you know.

The recent two poems (including this one) have come out very strong. You have presented reality in the most unpretentious manner ever. Wonderful lines.

Wishing you a great year of 2010.

Wonderful lines Amit!!!
From a critical point of view, I would say there is a very thin line between "devil" and "god" and we "all" have more or less both qualities embedded in us. And if anyone disagrees I would say that person is either living in a state of denial or she/he has not faced enough hardles(read opportunities)...
