Treasure Island

Martina Moriarty

(15/04/1964 / Kerry)

All Aboard.


Where is it that you've got to be!
far!
Why now?
after all this time...
A golden ticket worthless to the living?
Priceless to the New-Born dead.

NEXT STOP.

Doors open-
people everywhere...and nowhere?
It's nice to meet you! !
Again..we travel on?
Destination unknown
To the countless on the route home.

    Where is home? Death is a new beginning, something to be embraced.
    Shed this life and emerge free in an afterlife.
    Who knows maybe there is an afterlife beyond death's afterlife. (Report) Reply

It is very nice to think
The world is full of meat and drink,

In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
