Sip Your Tea Nice and Slow

Sip your tea nice and slow
for you know not, when
the clock tik will tok
forever, and dark
clouds blanket
your face,Your
eyes will never
open again
So sip your
tea nice
and slow.

the small
kind gestures
small like a mustard
seed, Allow them grow
in your heart, And double
to multiple seeds, Hold them
close to your breast, For they are rare in this wild earth.

Sip your tea nice and slow, as the long
strides of rain land,Treading on all
that’s left outside, You know not
when it will subside, And all
destroyed plants start to grow
so sip your tea nice and slow.

Pain bite
like a serpent
Leaving you numb
and motionless,worry
will fly your mind away, show
you hell and heaven, then convince
to enter hell, his bossom will seduce
your eyes, and because you are to weary
to resist, you will fall in it’s wide open arms.

Sip your tea nice and slow, for
yesterday is gone, tomorrow
you know not, but you have
today, to lose or use, don’t
let cold and ice freeze
your heart, And kill all
seeds of human
feelings, making
you toxic and
poisonous, For
the clock can
stop clicking
And make you lose your chance
To spill your heart to your special ones
So sip your tea nice and slow.

Life will show you the value
Of everyone around you
And how worthless some are
But you will decide what to take in your mouth
For hunger won’t decide for you
Just because someone treated you very bad
Doesn’t mean others will do the same
You won’t be a priority to everyone
Sometimes you’ll be just but an option
So long as you still live
You can be bitten by a sheep
And loved by a rattlesnake
So sip your tea nice and slow.
