Treasure Island

Forget or Forgive or Fight


If I would ask
Just to forget the past
Who I am and
Who will I be?

If I would ask
Just to forgive
Who I am and
Who will I be?

If I would ask
To fight with the past
Who I am
Who will I be?

If I am a victim
Use the word of forget or forgive
The others would say
That I am Crazy.

If I am the other side
Use the words of those
Will be a lie
Then where can I stand?
And what's the word

If the Forget is meaningless and
Forgive is useless
The Fight will be the word
But I feel that it is aimless
Nevertheless, it is a hope

Though the history belongs to past
And chapters are black
Memories and pains are behind
Together with blood of soil
And sighs of relatives
Shadows as ghosts

Lost souls
Needy of dignity crawls
To gain the demands
People fought and voiced
Everything in the past
That I today use
For the system is a profit
A capital for actors


Having said to forget or to forgive or to fight
Turning point will support
Not for the objects
But for the subjects
Then what's the word
Belongs to the justice, truth and dignity

To forget
There is no any sojourn
To forgive
There is no any consent
To fight
There is no any hope

The world is full of meat and drink,

In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
