Morrison’s Confession to St. Peter

BY OLDEPUNK

St. Peter greets his next soul at the gates, and asks for his name.  This particular soul shakes his long hair out then looks up and says:

“As long as there is something to hold onto

there will always be hope, struggle, curiosity

As long as I still draw breath

there will always be adversity

until there comes a time in life when I can no longer see

I will know there is something that cannot be taken from me

As long as there is a mother to bring life

there will always be fertility

As long as there is a father guiding

there will always be integrity

As long as there is a son to raise

there will always be prosperity

As long as there is a daughter to praise

there will always be felicity

until there comes a time in life when I cannot be me

I will know that there is something that I cannot see

As long as there is someone to teach

there will always be university

as long as there is more than one way to interpret the lesson

there will always be controversy

As long as there is a student to make a stand for truth and justice

there will always be a revolutionary

As long as there is a brother with which to share

there will always be honesty

As long as there is a sister to love

there will always be family

and the dream of equality

When there comes a time in life

when these are things I can no longer see

I will know that this is what will be the death of the free”

Jim pauses, looks around, and then says,

“By the way, mister, where in the hell are we?

  1. Olde Punk, this is epic. Your style has a flow about it that feels so fluid and natural. And the sentiments you articulate are beautiful and familiar. I can only hope to one day achieve a style of writing that feels so free and utterly lacking contrivance. I love it.

  2. This is heartening, surprising and adds a dash of humor, and on a sidenote (you know me)i love that you included sisters with brothers cause usually people stop at brothers like there’s no such thing as a sister 🙂 props!
