Alufalism songs1


No, no, no its enough
why is fear pushing me
all around
no i cann't face
the name of shame
no i cann't see reason
why i must bear
the foolish name

No failure cann't be
my name
O poverty what is this
why have you killed
my joy
no my name cann't
be lack how come
i sleep with sadness
no my name cann't be
joblesness

No, no don't call
me those names again
look my heart cries
for riches all i acheive
is nothing but failure

look at light in
a better name, better
than every other ones'
See see see the name
the greater name
the name above all
my heart is now with wisdom
abundant
becos i find the name

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
