Think What You Will


For if I die young
I grow not old and bald and cold
and youth is swift to pass
An errant daydream that will not last
to jest is to laugh
For life is such a ghastly farce

The die is cast
The mould is set
The shadows turn upon my life
And with deep regret
I plunge the knife
Further in it goes
To my body it screams death
blood gushes forth and flows
IT knows only it can know
The pain it's left behind

O Love! thou makest all things even
In earth or heaven;
Finding thy way through prison-bars
Up to the stars;
Or, true to the Almighty plan,
That out of dust created man,
