Prince Lartey


Work


Life life life i seek
the circumstance that am in
unless it absorbs me
how fun can it be?
like the seed in soil
with the lust of evergreen
groomed by natural elements
water, light, air, earth

death death death i seek
old age consumed in me
once strong now am weak
how quick can it be?
like the anchored tree itself
left on a desert field
destroyed by natural elements
water, light, air, earth

words words words i speak
is the story of me
first that brought fourth me
legacy of my thought in ink
my experience is life to live
my retirement is death to rise
seek not life or death
seek yes managerial word!
