A Means To The End  

I never thought of death,
a black sheep in the sorrowed mind.
Only as an absolution,
but with luck so hard to find.

I've  never known of life
in the ways that I've known love,
deeper then the thoughts derived
more intricate then a detail can give.

I've known the certainty of time
killing the pleasure of an eased mind
from knowing a certainty on its course
never granted never known

that everything we've ever lived
can become so much more alive then it was before
that our emotions are faltered in illusion
to the recognition of what becomes more real.

Roses are so much more 
beautiful when they're wilted
like time wears the wrinkles on a frown
like smiles were played out
but the things that are truly beautiful to us
remain where they're engrained

deep inside ourselves
thevinner core of our being
the grace that gives us fuel
to relive in the burning adoration of our course
only beginning where we found

a means to an end to keep on living
for what we know is right.
