The Province of the Saved

The Province of the Saved

The Province of the Saved
Should be the Art To save
Through Skill obtained in Themselves
The Science of the Grave

No Man can understand
But He that hath endured
The Dissolution in Himself
That Man be qualified

To qualify Despair
To Those who failing new
Mistake Defeat for Death Each time
Till acclimated to
