Closet skeleton, glass trapped spider.

Undying roach, survivor.

From talcum to coffin, rocking,

Back and forth, never stopping,

Never knocking and restless.

Complete the objective.

Finish the mission, life goal and get a receipt.

Keep the receipt and give it to God.

Hope for acceptance on your knees, at her feet.

The Great Mother birthed you, all odd

And exceptional. So, you can look up to the sky

And cry for help.
