Keith Parsons Poems
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
Last, I have lived a lifetime
My spirit soon is free
It’s time to move on to the next
Are you smooth and round and blue and green?
Do you turn around from west to east?
Can you see your neighbors from afar?
Are any neighbors like you are?
A tiny beacon, I am to you
Too small to see the rest of you
On faith I take it, the earthly claims
Truth by scholars, so proclaimed
