Each one of us has a special unique throne
In this vast kingdom of human form
A vessel is given to accumulate treasure
Which sovereignty being measured
First early years of reign,
A feather of a butterfly the vessel weighs
Playhouse fun with bow and arrows
Nursery rhymes of fairies and gnomes.
As our days extend through the adolescent arch
To the battle field that grownups march
Store virtues and vices the treasures craft
Not knowing the vessel heave fast
The day is getting closer to hand over the throne
This sovereignty is temporary own
Have to return in the same form to our Lord
With a clean vessel, completing the mission forced
Need a moment of silence,
Sight with wise guidance.
