The Young Man in my
Grandfather's Clock falls from the plank
coming from the hatch, wounded.

He heard the two chimes and screamed,
"Two O' Clock and all is well!"
An angry neighbor awakened
from his excited living voice.

Aims his shotgun out his window.
And with his nightcamp on,
shoots, killing
the man in my Grandfather's clock.


To all the souls who lived,
and did not have.
I share in your pain and know that one day,
someone will hold you,
and comfort will come.


The Lake of glass does cutmy heart.
Live is valuable because it is,

Strange it is,
that the water shifts so rapidly on a body
that doesn't move.

No matter how cold the water is,
it is always warmer than one degree less.

So Rejoice!
And live in the warmer water.

Please don't be just another dream.
I'd rather not wake from.

If you need to blow off some steam,
Be alone -
When ready, run to me - come.

"I'm a free man"
But if thou choosest to kill
It matters not, I died free
and you can never take that away.

I'll live again one day
Be put in bondage and set free again.
However, eternal freedom awaits
in the power of another
which you hold as well.

You choose - be wise.
