Enigma Weekend Edition: "Drink From This"

Drink From This
Allyson Deihl

Drink from this
Old rotten dirt
Drink from this cup of lace.
Drink and you too
Shall see
A lie in permanent place.
The world is not kind
And simple.
They lie to you
Right from the crib.
The world is a dark
And scary place
That won’t let
The light shine in.
So drink form this cup a spell
Drink from the cup of pure gold
That only wishes you well.
Go out in the dark
And dance with the shadows,
Make friends
With the spirits too.
For if you drink from this cup
Of pure gold,
The spirits will take you too.
