Your feelings are valid and real
At least you think so
Inside your head all the time
In the grey maze of your brain
Your emotions cause you to look away
From your inevitable death and decay
It’s hard to accept such nonsense when you
Are too comfortable lodged in your skin
With your all too valid and real feelings
But when you think about it
That is, your inevitable death and decay
You realize that you are just organic matter
Breaking down like a bundle of Roses
Lying against the tombstone
Of your cemetery plot
