Will There Be Heroes?

Will there be heroes
When dawn breaks tomorrow?
Will there be heroes
When the sun comes again?

The future comes streaming
Toward infinite passage
The possible outcomes
Whirl round us today.
But will there be heroes
Who cancel the horrors?
Will there be heroes
Who turn them away?

Will there be heroes
When dawn breaks tomorrow?
Will there be heroes
When the sun comes again?

Can you believe heroes
Who blockade the future
Can you understand
What it all could be like?
Could we ever tell you
How can you believe us ...

The Saint And Her Fool

She appears in the evening, young and lovely,
Tracing the very edge of a womanhood
That she will never know.
She glides among the trees, singing a silent
Vespers to the stars, and sighing love
And praise to her lord and God.
Dressed in white robes, soft sandals
Bind her feet and keep them
From the sharp and thorny ground.

[Hata Bildir]
