The Playground

We are all in the devil's playground, 
now watch as I breach over and hold on to God's hand real tight. 


~
#1. The underground is never lonely, to many hot dates. 

#2. The host and the guest never seem to rest.

#3. The light will always shine upon my soul, no matter the shadow.

Reflection

In the stillness of Silver Lake, reflects a golden harvest moon

              But how do I know
               what is lake and what is sky?
                If the world were upside down
                 the sky may be lake
                  and lake may be sky,......or do
                    mine eyes see two harvest moons?.....

                       Yet...what should it matter to I ?
                       Twice the splendor reflects for mine eyes............
