A Happy Ending?
On the moon we walk,
Of the stars we talk.
On the earth we live,
For the stars we strive.
Of a world we imagine,
With equal rights for all
On the lands we stand,
At the cost of others blood, we are bound.
The stories of the past,
We recite to our children.
For a better future they work
Well, who lives in the present?
The leaders rejoice, at the cost of people’s lives
The thieves and the policemen, at the same side of a coin.
Some prefer to beg, others want to work,
Yet, in this small world, so little do we serve.
Only yesterday they told me,
Hard work outgrows talent.
What I see today is, bundles from the banks
And for the future, deserving dying of hunger.
I see the text books, scattered over the floor
Drugs enjoy the comfort, of the bag students bore.
And out of the window, the parks lay untouched
The swings all rusted, the flowers all plucked.
More than relations, or their emotions
Things are valued, envy is treasured.
And then they say, we are progressing
The toothless people, close their eyes, and wonder!
