sudden haste arose as i entered the gates heaven abounded this place seen by the look on my face i'd been tormented over the years of just what i'd say to you through so many tears thieves tore into the mere grave sight hatred and greed uprooted the maple tree exposing your human remains to little ole me i suppose the faint hisses humorous livid kackling hindered beneath my feet the ground rumbled a neccessity approach steeples staggered stones crumbled as i remembered our last talk from that day i began to walk i danced on your toes as you kissed my nose how to mourn such fond memories why i gravely uttered are you here among the hidden anger behind the sword and dagger of thieves swagger whom followed me to your final resting place yellow pansies lured me through soft earth wooden stumps lined like apostle guiding me to a quiet breeze that aroused the hairs on my neck this place of aching suffering crowded with wails timid screams of lifeless suffering bandits ripping broaches scarfs watches from the unearthed i called out to the father amids my quiet fear tip toeing backwards year after year leaning over where your plot use to be but now exposed for all to see resurrecting the holy spirit you now own no more wandering among the valley of dry bones from a brisk wind the sky opened abruptly releasing souls into the clouds one by one taking your place upon a long awaited throne removing the malice seated forever with jesus in his fine palace

the vision intertwine from the depths of my souls pleading heart anxiously awaiting my entrance wildly tamed mastering naught calmly beneath me in spite of daytime medley i'd vaguely withstoods hints of a bias need stemming from the spriritual negro aspect a coming laughter catered to an yet measured throughout the infamous gloating italian song hung like pearls around my slender neck ravishing me above masonic ware's craving the ancient temples of pyramids carved within my sortedness gleaming between a rapture graciously borrowed five generations ago i could reach into the fighting fiercelessly of irish chimney sweepers faded memories of polands esscentric reaction to poverty and gurt channeled throughout the dust of kremlin's shore's on tar beach vaguely i'd settled into a silent germanic structured being outwardly lived however quietly frowned upon around here
