That spins through a wheel and turns into gold
That sometimes rusts and turns to mold
From years of promising things to behold
Or from the sins of youth now turned old
Or from a night of cries
From old wounds that still seep
Cause their still bleeding when you sleep
Dreaming of the things you keep inside
Stories in my mind along with memories from time
Forces my teeth to grind
All of this turned into twine
To one day be appraised by the great divine
But until then
I
