The Bargain For Life

The Wretched
He used to sit at the front row of the pew
He is the choirmaster.
The knell never tolled
Litanies sung in the bar
Psalms murmured in ripples piece
Mourners in mixed shades Faces of guffawing smiling friends
And his eternity box bear no cross
No colouring.
And carved by the barmen
He died in the cathedral
And buried in the bar.

The Wealthy
He used to sit in the front row of the bar
He is the chief drinkard
The knell tolled intermittently
Litanies mourned in full cry
Mourners in black shades Faces of sobriety and sad friends
And his eternity golden ocher box bear cross
A golden colour box
And carved by the cathedral.
He died in the bar
And buried in the cathedral.

At this time of the year
Love is like an angry sea,
With waves coming from all the angles,
Making all relationship struggle,
Tearing relationships,
The same way waves tear ships.

The ocean is endlessness with a bottom that only God's feet can get to
The intensity of the waves can always tell us her mood

The waves of the ocean is an ancient dance
The people of the water understand its power

The waves of the ocean have seen the spirit of The Almighty
Only the voice of God can silence her tantrum

  A sailing tempest ship glides
     Through the tensed waves of the ocean
  And doubts my destination home.

The stormy sea, the fear and the lost
Of dear ones amidst troubles
We shall sail to the coast.
