A holy man speaks of peace
Lies; he knows of unrest
They bury a memory
In a box, I'm lain
In death

But it is not so!
I am here, still!
Perhaps not in life, but after

For I am a shadow in the trees
I am your good luck
I am the tear on your cheek
Hidden by rain

And now the heavens weep
While my family does also
If only they could see
Beyond this shadow!

But I see new horizons
Different seasons, different stars
Unfamiliar yet elegant
Just as beautiful as ours

And in new sky; a voice
That tells me wonders
Of no boundary
But the wonders that they are:
Just Imaginary

In life, opportunity,
In death there is none,
To make change in history.
What change have I done?
do you believe in an afterlife?

Well, then you have to consider the laws that govern the world after life. Perhaps in the next world both are possible, you know?

Yeah you do but yeah maybe both ARE possible but we may never know seeing as how the dead keep many secrets

I love the mystery of it all, but at the same time it's so frustrating because I can't know definitively if one way or another is true haha

Exactly, that's why ghosts are so weird; they are in between both worlds

This is actually a great piece. The third stanza is great, as is the second-to-last and the last.

I can't particularly see anything wrong or out of place here. This piece is pretty golden, bro.
