Live in Effigy

We all live in a burning effigy,

of those who came before us.

We can’t see we’re but a tree,

standing alone in a forest.

 

So when the reaper swings your way,

don’t think that you can lose him.

You are little more than a thought,

that can be changed on a whim.

 

So live your life to the extreme,

and don’t you worry about labels.

Because the life you are about to lead,

is how they come up with those fables.
