A HIGHLY EVOLVED BEING WOULD NOT SHOOT BACK


A highly evolved being would give its life
if you wanted to kill this being with a gun or a knife.
A highly evolved being would not shoot back
for it knows it’s soul lasts and lasts.
So as you see
on a highly evolved planet
people don’t die from greed.
They don’t die at all
in fact they all have a ball.
Not like on Earth where we are infants still
not like a real infant who is real.
Real before the innocence was lost
lost to the planetary dream which dearly costs.

AT last she comes, O never more
In this dear patience of my pain

Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
