When I was Alive
When I was alive, I had a family. I had a job. I raised a kid.
When I was alive, I ate good food. I had good taste. That’s what I did.
When I was alive, my job was great. The pay was good. Enjoyed it a lot.
Now that I’m dead, I float around. Near my marked grave. Watched myself rot.
When I was alive, I went on trips. Where it was fun. The best of spots.
When I was alive, I wore good clothes. The finest threads. Some full of dots.
When I was alive, I had good goals. I had good dreams. Was totally driven.
Now that I’m dead, I scare some souls, they have good screams, running from the unliving.
