Berlin Wall


Berlin Wall

Divided, divided; world was divided
Great Chinese wall was broken by artillery bullet
Great wall of among two worlds was broken
Berlin wall broke and collapsed

Keeping ruins of
Broken wall of Berlin
Remnants seen by stopping
Broken heart burnt

Boundary of black and white world
Shows the whole picture
When looked at by white color world
Everybody is silent

Blackness of the red world
Come and see from the eye of west
Even there are no positives
Such a hidden thing would be constant

To see the ruins
People are on pilgrimage
Eyes of look are quite
A gap of instances

Digging tunnels
Jumping over the wall
Looking for the west freedom
Have found expected goal?

Being Disappeared past
Are showed to new generation
Children are playing
In two sides of difference
Without having recognized

Broken down
It is not only the wall of Berlin
Broken down
Left branch dream

Though it is shown by hiding
Teaches a lesson
World is a field of Freedom
Is not one and only problem

It is very nice to think
The world is full of meat and drink,
With little children saying grace
In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
