Treasure Island

Sustaining Memories


Everything that has died was once alive,
living fruitfully with bittersweet memories

Now in the deep, non-ending sleep of death,
minds no longer mirroring what they see or
feel, hearts having no more rhythmical
beats to pulse it's heartbeat into life.

Unequal laws unto a savage race,
