How beautifully did God paint the morning sky!
Such explosions of vibrancy graced mine eyes.
Too soon the sunlight will drench his blessed opus,
Leaving me haunted by its lasting phantom.

Or fade into oblivion devils provide.
To die or to live? If it were up to me,
My child, I would choose the latter..."
