The testicles of a foolish man

The testicles of a foolish man Are heavier than his brain. He swings them from the left To the right, Making his ego swell like the Belly of an expectant cow. His testicles are his pride, And they darken his sight! They rob him of virtue And give him vice in return. He is the […]

A piece of clay

I am just a piece of clay, Made from dust and to dust I shall return. Like a flower that blossoms at night, And withers by day! Blessed with a life to be taken away. I am just a drop of breath Standing between life and death, Like a light that shines but soon fades. […]

Cuts so Deep

When soul wants to fly; cry! When emotions sleep; weep For the last time paiñ kisses; misses Some echos so deep; reap Some words you feel; heal Violent, vigorous and cool; a fool A soul In the wild; child Will you have a look at; ayhh My impermanent heart; scars Close enough on you fingers; […]
