Do You Know?

I hear you!

Your voice is silent, but it invades the air.

You deny hope to the living,

Leaving bodies to rot in despair.

I sense you!

I feel, I smell you. I taste,

Your lavish scent of greed

As you condemned all to waste.

You live!

Born without taking breath,

Without love, without thought

Of a life beyond death!

You died!

You existed, but why?

No heartbeat, no pulse,

You only wished to die!

Did you have colour?

Did you have grace?

Did you please others?

Did you leave a trace?

As I asked the questions,

Then to all, I say no!

If you knew this person,

Then you too would know!

About Daniel Kemp

Daniel Kemp, ex-London police officer, mini-cab business owner, pub tenant and licensed London taxi driver never planned to be a writer, but after his first novel —The Desolate Garden — was under a paid option to become a $30 million film for five years until distribution became an insurmountable problem for the production company what else could he do? Nowadays he is a prolific storyteller, and although it’s true to say that he mainly concentrates on what he knows most about; murders laced by the intrigue involving spies, his diverse experience of life shows in the short stories he compiles both for adults and children. He is the recipient of rave reviews from a prestigious Manhattan publication, been described as —the new Graham Green — by a managerial employee of Waterstones Books, for whom he did a countrywide tour of signing events, and he has appeared on ‘live' television.
