Pass The Torch (Hiss) - a dedication

There comes a time when
we have to do it
no matter

Life is too big too small
to consider
we fight the dying flame

lines forming maps
across once flawless skin
sheer from pure naivety

the not knowing
everything seems smooth
it's only after that we learn

have the 'aha' moment
that the bumps are either
worth it or not

we can play that hand out
with a smile or not
that's all

the snake was saying in that

long long hiss.
