Sinking Ships

Sinking Ships

A Chapter by Abdul Batin Osman Bey
"

Inspired by the Circle 7 Koran(7:10) Now cease to seek for heaven in the sky; just open up the windows of your hearts, and, like a flood of night, a heaven come and bring you boundless joy.

"

The sun sets behind the velvet sea

All I can do is drift on empty

Void of places of where I should be

Pieces of paper go wherever the wind leads

 

Paradise is a state of mind

Open the window to whatever you’ll find

 

I’m only a lonely purple star

Beautiful from afar

One day I’ll burn out with an old guitar

Vibrations come and go humans bleed

 

Paradise is a state of mind

Open the window to whatever you’ll find

 

Follow the ruse of an Elvis hound

Forever lost no need to be found

Wherever I lay is my burial ground

Remove yourself from bizarre people needs

 

Paradise is a state of mind

Open the window to whatever you’ll find

 

Enjoy your sex and enjoy your wine

We are eternal much like time

The moment you fall in with luck

Is the moment you’ll be static

In a casual cycle of birth and death

 

Paradise is a state of mind

Open the window to whatever you’ll find

 

Remember no one is blind

Some just choose not to see
