Soul Placation

Drink in all you can.
The world isn't waiting
For you to understand
What awaits the day of man.

Hold a piece of nothing,
Revere it for its simple grace.
The edge is steep and hard to climb.
Stay back, bask in the sun and smile.

Feel something unseen,
Taste the pomegranate,
Full of juice and bittersweet.
Find the laugh in every day.

Do you know what you're looking for?
Can you put it into words?
A little piece of time
Untouched by reality?

Will you tell me your secrets?
And waste away forever in a day?
Will you hold onto everything
Then stop to placate my soul
If only for a while?
