In the Shedding of Skin Cells

† †
Thank you, electric Tiger. †  
I know the strange, †  
I embrace it. †  
† †
Itís either that, or †  
die inside too soon †  
to discover †  
what youíre made of †  
and who you really are. †  
† †
Tell me, †  
how could you have †  
been so careless †  
just once around the sun? †  
† †
Donít believe †  
what you think is †  
the truthó why not †  
show the way? †  
† †
No, not that way, †  
donít go on †  
about being noticed †  
only for the erotic. †  
† †
Shouldnít you know? †  
Itís why Iím here, †  
youíre a relic like me. †  
† †
Being a Tiger †  
as I am, you have †  
the authority †  
and the will. †  
† †
Donít deny †  
your destiny, †  
trivialize it or pretend.  

The worth  
of gleaming onyx,  
this belongs to You.
