Everlast - Poem by Tori Beals

Stars shine in indefinite silence
the current moves forever flowing
crickets chirp their chimes undying
lightning bugs are always glowing
The immortal wind trickles through the trees
whose trunks are centuries old
mothers pillage the snow for a parcel of food
babies huddle together fighting the cold
Women sit beside the fire
gossiping of fate
they wonder about their destiny
and love their life-long mate
Men sit together and laugh
and drink their entire life
yet it won't make them unclean
nor end their mortal strife
This is my home and has always been
a place where all is sane
no material desires
just pure love uncontained
In our place, as old as earth itself
unchanged by time and death
we'll live forever in harmony
until we draw our final breath
