This child grows into a man
Finds his mind and his tribe
Grape berries dry into raisins
And the taste feels different
Love lies, sleeping in the coffins
This is coffee, this is life unshelled
Tomorrow is never promised
The day will come to change us all
Don’t you have eyes that sees this far?
We are all going to die someday?
Isn’t that enough to care for one another?
Isn’t that enough to make one humble?
Isn’t that enough to make one honest?
Isn’t that enough to end these battles?
Veins of the past
Colors that still live
You cannot tie your shoelaces
Unless you wear those shoes
Feel the strength of time breathing
Shapeshifting through emotions
These seeds of now
These thoughts in the minds
These changes that breathe
These questions that lives
The way we live life answers it all
And dear God
If you can hear my heart
Give me the knowledge
To understand and accept
The things I cannot understand.
