“When I’m at the Pearly Gates, this’ll be on my Videotape.”


Longed, my heart has, for today

To finally dance

To finally sing with joy

Ears-deep in the music others can not hear

“And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those

Who could not hear the music.


Clocks, money, even my own limbs - disregarded

Once all things, on days like today, are swallowed

By My Hungry Heart!

Pockets feel so much better now

-Once their contents vacated-

Free legs, free mind, no mind


Now all the free souls gather together

We’ll have some laughs in disregard of our appendages

Though it may come to an end

Everything I’ll lend

-My dear friends, ever and ever-

To live in the present, truly is to live forever
