Prodigal Of The Two Thousand’s

Prodigal Of The Two Thousands long poem

Photo by Marmened

As long as we live
As long as we believe
I cant see heaven being better
than this
I cant see hell being harder
than this
I cant see heaven being
sweeter than this
I cant see hell being hotter
than this
As long as we achieve
As long as we grieve
As long as we deceive
As long as we still pray to God
that when we die, our souls
he should receive
We are one me and you
We are all bones new and old
Some women, Medusas,
turning men to stones
Love is so divine that we loose
our minds
Life is by a grand design
So we will not resign before
our time
Loneliness has got the best of
Unforgiveness has got the rest
of me
As fast as time passes
As long as witches
attend church masses
I will continue to write for the
I feel the world is blind and i
am its glasses
I feel the world needs to
celebrate, raise me up, I am
the glasses
The weight of the world on
my shoulder like the donkey
carrying Jesus into Damascus
As long as we perceive
As long as we conceive
At last I am lime light flashing
As fast as crime happens
At last I am right life living
I found my space in your head
You found a place in my heart
I knew it would happen from
the start
A mistake already out of hand
like a dart
I am a prodigal of the two
Unknown like the Laotians
Found in the depths of the
ocean floor of humanity like
So remember me forever
Don’t ever forget, never.

This generation is perhaps as conflicted, as the ones gone by, yet they are happy and proud to be here on this earth.

Two short poem

Mid this commemoration, Of annihilation Of inclinations And pursuits, My soul revels In these fervent goodbyes. The stiff and the spiritless, Scream my name. They exult and glorify This celebration. Agony, Candid in it’s certainty, Leaves always, To re appear
