Lamentations

Lamentations

Oh earth, hear this blue melody
Soured lyrics of the broken souls
A cry thundering from seared souls
A piece of echoes unto humanity

Oh! The beautiful face of life has faded
Maggots becomes man’s assorted meat
Rotten food becomes scrumptious meal
Is this what life offers

Great dreamers become scavengers
Hardship steal visions away
It is nasty to yet romance hope
Every good thing stray in the hood

Tomorrow is another day to hopelessly die
There’s no resolution anywhere
Except the echoes of riotous lamentations
Let’s mourn the death of breakthrough

There’re captains who deprive us of our divine right
The land is sick and filled with the sick
Let’s rekindle our love with hope
Perhaps she would bear us a new era
