LISTEN YOU UNRULY SON OF THIS LAND.

 

Listen you unruly son of this land.

Listen to the wails of the innocents.

Listen to the cries of your forefathers.

Listen i say! to the quiet noises and muffled rage.

 

Listen i say to the hurrying  feet of your ancestors,

Whom in there intelligence moulded you the real tomorrow ---

Which you have strangled to death.

Oh! Nay! in your clamour for wealth.

 

Where are they? The life savers---

Who trade their morning for a bountiful evening.

Where are they? Those unstained souls--- 

Who kept their pride and dignity high.

Where are the original offspring of this land?

 

Its now, we sweep away the dust,

That stains and hinder our growth.

Its now we join hands and build A BETTER TOMORROW.

Light and beautiful is all they see
But that is not all there is to it
If only they could look close enough......

The agony of losing you
Is like a broken china unfettered hopes
That sparked neons to my buds.

Slowly you begin to sprang
Like a woman yielding to her man
Your beauty is a bang!

Oh I love this life
Sorrowful harsh heartbreaking laziness all sort of
All and love it gives.
