The Wise Samurai Said To The Child

Poem By Lazarus Knix

If one is sincere to the true path,
And never bows to God-
He shall still be protected.
Yet this world houses only “Facades”,
And death- the sole sincerity.

So best to wander as a shell,
And hold nothing close to yourself,
As life is no escape from death-
Rather death escape from life.
