I believe in ghosts, spirits that are here among us,

Do they wander all around us as we live and sleep.?

Sit at the edge of our beds talking to us while we dream,

Are they angry or sad, happy with smiles that last forever.?

Are their mean and evil ones that cause us pain while we sleep,

Maybe the unexplained events in our land are because of them.?

I think we have ghosts among us from many different centuries,

Possibly they visit a world they can never again live in, missing.

Do they trap themselves in a world where they no longer belong,

Afraid to move on to a new world, scared as they are not quite sure.?

Ghosts are where?, forever they wander between what we can not see.

  1. I like this poem very much. I believe the spirit does live on in some form. I feel energy in places I’ve never been before. I believe I have lived before. I hope between my incarnations, I am a happy ghost that brings love to those I reach out and touch as they sleep and dream.

  2. nice poem on a phenomenon we take for granted until we watch horror movies. in Africa, most cultures actually have a ritual to settle the spirit of the departed, for instance, the kurova guva ceremony amongst the Shona in Zimbabwe. until this ritual is performed, they believe the spirit will roam the forest and be a danger to the living relatives. brilliant post.
