Everlasting Giants


From the moment
You learn
To say Dad,
A lot of giants
Stand against you.

How they're alive,
You're never told.
Thinking of them;
Not your right;
Merely obey
To the end of time.

Everlasting giants
Are always there.
Unlike those of epics,
No heroes defeat them;
Fighting with them is futile.

But after some years,
A miracle happens;
Old enemies
Begin to speak
By your own tongue.

They never forsake you!

The world is full of meat and drink,

In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
