  11. 11. 10 Decision There are only two possibilities
 God the result of imagination
 Or God the Lord over all creation
 With supernatural abilities
 Considering the liabilities
 The former, a finite observation
 The latter, spirit rejuvenation
 With its infinite capabilities
 Choosing the former one has to reason
 What's wanted is some final solution
 An end to it all with no life ahead
 I choose the latter for a new season
 Trusting in God as my resolution
 Gaining promised eternal life instead

Oh, he’ll be here for a while then he might be there. So where is he going to be? Not here, in my home. Not anymore. He’s got a while before he has to go, but what is a few months really? When you’ve spent all your years around him, when he’s lived here all eighteen years of his life, what is a few months? So I ask again, Where are you going?
  22. 22. Parody Poem Some say the world will end in fire,
 Some say in ice.
 From what I've tasted of desire
 I hold with those who favor fire.
 But if it had to perish twice,
 I think I know enough of hate
 To say that for destruction ice
 Is also great
 And would suffice. Some say that life’s an adventure Some say a journey. From what I’ve experienced I agree with those who say adventure. But if I must call it else, I think they’re close enough to say that a journey Is also similar And would avail. Original Parody
