Life covers a lot of ground ....

There are moments to face the truth ...
and then there are moments to escape its reach ...
There are moments to explore and ponder ....
and there are those when ignorance is sheer bliss...
There are moments when guilt becomes desirable ..
and moments when pain brings an exquisite relief ...
There are moments when loneliness transcends all reality ...
and those when affection starts to reek....

There are moments to go out and touch the horizon..
and those when it's best to hide and weep ...
There are moments when sunshine is pure and delightful,
And then there are those when thundering grey skies bring their own sense of peace,
There are moments when silence fails to bring any solace,
and those when tranquility is found in the midsts of raging shrieks....

There are moments when bitterness seems more appropriate,
and those when all remorse is lost,

A prayer for the Dead

For all those who have died,
in flesh and in thought,
here's a rememberance to you
one and all,
May it be peace you've found
and may you forgive the forgetful alives,
who're too busy to be rankled by the past ..

On behalf of all those wanton wanderers
too busy to look aft,
I take this moment to deliver
a prayer long overdue and past.
Take solace old warriors
for the dwelling you find yourselves in
is a place there is an escape not.
And soon with open arms it'll welcome
those like me who chose to remember
and those who simply forgot.

Hold no grudge my dear departed friends,
for you know only too well,
in this place and in this world,
a moment spent in thought of another,
is too valuable to expend.

So here i stand in folly
praying for my kind,
on behalf of all those too busy
and all those who simply forgot.
