What My Father Meant To Say Before He Left
My son, don’t waste a second of your youth.
The body slowly breaks down as it’s used.
So use it for good before you leave.
My son, take the poison of true love.
Once you have a taste, you’ll depend on the drug.
So use it ‘til you’re addicted and weak.
My son, stare death in the eye and know you aren’t afraid.
One day dying will seem like a much-needed change.
So use it when you’ve lost the will to play.
I’m sorry I lost the will to play.
