Jim Morrison’s “New Epitaph for Pere Lachaise” By Jan Eloise Morris

Jim Morrison

New Epitaph for Pere Lachaise

Sensitive, Mystical Poet

Your legacy live on;

Stoned as petrified reptile

In the amber resin of your ageless words,

Passionate images.


Only sleeping in the spirit of your generation.

How peculiar a twist to fate comes awakening.

The virgin student fascinated by disc technology

     Finds camaraderie among your lyrics

A lost soul reaches for a book of library poetry

     To discover forgotten passions in your verse.

A collage of celluloid impressions moves an observer

     To search beyond for remembered truths.

Death has no hold on your ancient powers.

Your time has come again

Myth ignited into flame.

Dormant seeds of great vision

Have begun to burst and grow.

The second coming of a generation,

Older, wiser, the struggle for justice lost in

     Decades of the struggle for paper.

The realization of selling out what was once held most dear.

Footsteps caught in mid air, a sobering look back toward

     A fork in the road of life.

We should have listened to forewarning.

The delicate thread of the search for truth

     Once again unites our legions.

Years of obligations and promises behind,

One by one we “get together one more time,”

Dare to light the candle of long ago dreams,

Lift the staff of courage, sincerity, the thing that is right.

Small contributions by sheer numbers,

Our dreams of America – Proud, Free, Green

Seems less impossible

I wish you were here to see it…

I have always looked at the universe in multiple ways. Experiences with beauty and peacefulness only to be shattered by hatred and ugliness. Why does the world work? How can we look at all the amazing things we have while dealing with the hardships? Many times throughout my life experiences have come full circle with only me to see it. I don’t even believe Existence is aware of these times. It is the most supernatural phenomena I have witnessed.
