Can you


Has not my hand left you
Have I not whispered mysteries of life in your ear
Have you lost what I have given you
Look in your spiritual pocket there
See what I have placed in your hand
Do you feel the power with in you
Can‘t you see your destiny before you
Will you not open up your hand

See door before you
Can you see the tree that grow
Can you reach the fruit that hangs
Can you taste the nectar passion
Can you feel the vital high
Eat the skin, seeds and the juices
Let nothing go to wast
Leave nothing on the tree
lick the juices of your face

New fruit will grow tomorrow
New trees will grow as well
your seeds of life eternal
That fall on fertile grown
I have never left you for a moment
I never will at all
You are my fathers children
I love you one and all

Poem of the Day

poet Christopher Marlowe

It lies not in our power to love or hate,
For will in us is overruled by fate.
When two are stripped, long ere the course begin,
We wish that one should love, the other win;
