The Fountain

A New kingdom will rise
From the disguise
Of the old kingdom’s demise
Because in truth, nature cannot hide
All the ways we spend our days
Avoiding our pain
The pictures we take
Of babies not yet awake

In the warmth of each other’s embrace
We can look each other in the face
Taste the sweetness that drips off
And seeks its place
Drink the fullness from the fountain of youth
The ever present place in You
