Six Feet Under....

My name is Hassan Aden and am leaning towards PreMed or Physician assistant. I chose a specific moment, Because this person touched my life when she passed away in 07. The person that inspired my poem was my aunt Fosiya. I love reading poems but this is my first time am writing one. It was kind of difficult. Because i had to think about what my next line was going to be. Overall, it took me about 5hrs to write it!!

I was walking along a quiet place
Lots of weeds and graves I face
Flowers grow peacefully with grace
Six feet under, they await their case
Each grave there, has a story to tell
Of the time they're alive and well
Of the living earth, they did dwell
Of the time they rose or fell
They saw the sun set at the shore
Birds fly high, they heard and saw
Their families, they all cared for
Like us, they're once alive before
Love and loved, they once felt the glow
life. They're there, not too long ago
But now they're dead and buried below
Graves tell their stories, row by row
Depends on their faith, low or high
The dead may smile or painfully cry
Now six feet under, alone they lie
It's the beginning for those who die
