Sorry my mind was miles away Slam

Sorry my mind was miles away You've caught me in my rocking chair Steadily rocking back and forth Quietly contemplating which way is backward or true north Expression blanker than my mind or winter botox pale ashen faced Here in body yet trapped inside my thought forgot Unable to face reality searching solace , sanctuary A billion miles and galaxies from whence i thought i wished to be Floating above a sea of purest dead black salt A relic of evolution A social dinosaur Passing time until extinction comes a calling Blowing me out the water For a future generation of archeologists to discover Everything about me from my diet to the grooming of my hair But all my thoughts and my desires and what made me tick Those are mine for eternity and evermore No one can take them away from me They are me They are i As in life And so to death 1 life 1 owner

Indeed Christopher your thoughts are yours forever, apparently and even the scientists agree, information cannot be destroyed, even within a black hole, now there’s one to ponder, cheers David
