Innocence(PART 1)


What good is a fish without tail?
Everyday is but a daily sail
A minute Hail Mary via this e-mail
Here! I live a fairy tale
Whiles the sun may shine
the cloud may form rain
how we use it is a gift from today
yesterday is history
tomorrow is mystery
today a present
life is for living
not for sleeping
rest while you can
but don't rust
the palm tree sways when energy comes to play
we plant seeds to get beans
that's what the soil had seen
a fish is still a fish
so it is even without a tail!

Boece or Troilus for to write anew,
Under thy long locks thou may'st have the scall
But after my making thou write more true!
