Silently a life transcends
Away from all her dearest friends.
Caught beneath a heavy mound
Six feet underneath the ground.

Her years are spent, her lessons learnt,
She lies not here beneath this dirt.
She's gone to join that nether-race,
That drift beyond this mortal space.

In lands of golden splendid peace,
She makes her way towards their feast.
Who would wish to call her back,
To this poor land with all we lack?

And after all that she has seen? No.
She is now best left to dream...

She had blue skin,
And so did he.
He kept it hid
And so did she.
They searched for blue
Their whole life through,
Then passed right by -
And never knew.

~ Shel Silverstein


The area dividing the brain and the soul 
is affected in many ways by experience -

Some lose all mind and become soul:

Some lose all soul and become mind:

Some lose both and become:

~ Charles Bukowski
