With the words of the present moment
I compose poems in my head
Writing a life
Worthy of a quote etched
On my tombstone
As close as I can get to capturing the
Thoughts of my higher self
I want more than the sick
Posing in a life worthy of a photograph
Framed of my youth beside my bed
With God on my side
I compose poems in my head
Writing a life
Worthy of a universe etched
On a grain of sand
