Minding My Mind

In those dark days 
When everytime is a down time
And the lime is not in its prime

Those days when for a dime
You could spare a prime rhyme
And pay a dollar for a cent 

Those days when the slimy 
Tongues of foes wag in ecstasy
Those days when life seems to turn tide 
And you feel God has finally gone blind 

Alas! I think of death, like I am right now 
Say you know how I feel
We only are playing the truth
Smiling with a sweet tooth
It's only if Dzogbeze Lisa has abandoned you 
In the thick forests with clouding trees 

Then you really will know
Death really can bring life 
But the pleasure shall I deny my foes, 
Up I shall stand still to claim it all
To work for success and not to die for it

To poke death in face and smile back at life
