Cherish Not Perish

Cherish Not Perish

Whats with the subliminal resources

Completely lost with unforgiven chambers

You will perish as we go through our courses

As you go about with evil gamblers

Life itself is nowhere

To be found

Truth is here so they

Send the hounds

Everyone is dead while they cherish


Everything is beyond reality

Knowing it is a ticket

To the upstairs where we find Everywhere

No such thing as pain

Spirits instead of my brain

The Good have worked beyond chores

So we all know the poor

Thanks to War, Death, and Dead

We know to listen to our Family and Friends

When I ran away as a child, needed a cigarette and a smile you you never turned me away, even as your dark hour came nearer I knew you would always be there,and when you finally needed me I helped with the best of me, trying to keep that wonderful smile and rewarding laugh, spirits high and peace of mind I’m glad that I got to say “good bye” with a kiss on the check and an “I love you”, even though you were lost I knew you knew me then too.

Now ten, ten is mannerly and meek, Sweet home-schooled child of the number family. Ten perches properly in his seat, with one hand aloft, […]
