Keith Parsons

Rookie (02/03/1962 / Delaware)


In this life like all the rest
I’ll learn my lessons well
By suffering or dominate

Lately as I age some more
It occurs to me
The aches and pains that I incur,

I climbed into this body
When still a womb I see
A vessel for the life I lead
So imperfectly

Last, I have lived a lifetime
My spirit soon is free
It’s time to move on to the next
I, immortally
