what good is the flesh without the blood

What good is the flesh without the blood,

A carcass with no life?

What merit has perfection or beauty unmarred

By the gleaming cold metal of a knife?

I want my life force to flow all around me,

I want to first die and then live

I have no death wish in the traditional sense,

For what pleasure would suicide give?

There's too much to experience

In this world of illusion,

Too much to to be contained in our time here on earth,

Which is why I want to die for a while

And experience the dawn of rebirth.
