In This Age

This goes for the ones

Who gave their hearts in vain;

Who loved and cried in pain,

For in this age, love is a crime

Unless you know the game.

 

This is an ode to the beggars along the way,

For the orphans who can’t read a word nor play,

For the youths who had lost their ways,

And the deaf who can’t hear me pray.

 

In this age

Where hunger feeds the poor

And money runs the rules

Please take us away.

 

Take us somewhere else

To a new identity, another age

With beautiful memories for a past,

Where present smiles do last,

Where love knows no bounds,

And where heartbeat’s louder than doubt.

 

This goes for the mother

Who left her baby

To feed a stranger’s child,

For in this age, stay together

If you have food and water.

 

I dedicate this to those who had not a day

In this age, for their lives were taken away.

To workers who weren’t paid due

And the blind singer who once prayed.

 

In this age

Where status is so cruel

And power is the rule

Let us float away.

 

Take us somewhere else

To a new identity, another age

With beautiful memories for a past,

Where present smiles do last,

Where love knows no bounds,

And where heartbeat’s louder than doubt.

 

Take us away. In this sad age…We pray.

WISH I COULD DREAM FOREVER


Selene, enchantress of the night,
Chain me with light
To this wonder –
My dream’s zephyr.

Let me drift to a paradise
Where no one lies,
And no disdain
Runs through my veins.

Whisper me Endymion’s curse –
Zeus’ spell verse,
So dire sunbeams
Won’t fail my dreams.
