Tomorrow is full of sorrow

how do I know?

Because I feel the ice beginning to melt

and the vibrating sting

by the corner of my eyes

I hear the future cries ringing in my ears

life may end tonight

but I'll never know

not till the snoring stops

and her body lies dead in her bed

her bald head will still be on her fluffy pillow

but her soul will be up in the heavens

near G-D

and perhaps they will hold hands

my dear sweet daughter

she is nothing but innocents like a spring day

When you look at the sky what do you see?

Birds in the wind,

Or clouds floating by?

Can you still see the sun

When it’s dark all around?

When you look at the clouds what do you see?

A rabbit or an angel,

A horse or a devil?

Can you still see the blue

Through the clouds above you?

When you look at the stars what do you see?

Diamonds flickering,

Or hydrogen burning

In the vastness of space of time –

The origin of all life.

When you look at yourself what do you see?

Too many times I've stood before a mirror

And gazed into Eyes I did not recognize as my own

Evil eyes. Angry eyes. Eyes full of hatred.

The dark and the light collide into one space

As I long to bring myself into the existence I know

Wholeness makes my heart beat fast;

Adventure within my soul, yet--

The elation of airiness has me float like a marshamallow

Beyond this world and back

Light as a feather, stiff as a board.

It's not the temptation I shall fear,

But its leader that I follow--

The devil masquerading... Read More
