Home: Poetry: Ivy McKnight: Eternity's Fool
To take this life, I will, within time, have another,
and faded memories will once again become true,
in child innocence I will grow and learn once more,
for you cannot kill me.
And heaven is a palace where sinful fools reside,
ruled by an O mighty for whom they serve and obey,
where my dreams dare not travel, avoiding temptation,
for my own life is hell.
But as I continue on this infinite journey,
treading along endless paths worn down by my own feet,
I watch another soul put to blissful rest on high,
but only life can defeat death.
