Cradle to Grave


Newborn soul of wind and sky

Angels tread softly upon this place


Eyes of elemental flame

Glowing passion, simmering grace


Feral child of natures plan

Innocence of this earthly place


Learning now the ways of man

His sins to be embraced


Realm of man exacts its toll

A life spent bereft of care


Cynics heart, unfeeling hands

Vacant eyes and deadened stare


Beliefs embraced, preached as truth

Corrupted chants of prayer


Spread the lies of immortality

The guff no souls to spare


Fire to embers, flames to ash

Life’s goals begin to fail


Within himself he lives and breathes

Good intentions he derails


Final breaths he draws in pain

Memories start to pale


A world now dims in retrospect

As he steps beyond the veil
