Real People Do Real Things

The struggles continues
East versus west
North versus south
Many men stumble
While others rise up
The voices still lingers in my mind
A battle for the rights of my soul
Not really sure who was the victor
Just know that I’m at the crossroads

The struggles continues
Black versus white
Love versus hate
Children born to suffer and die
As the elderly pray for a peaceful and merciful death
Yet they keep living on in pain
Real people do real things
And the hour passes on
The voices still yelling in my mind
Fighting for the rights of my soul
Not really sure who was the loser
Just know that I’m at the crossroads
That fork on life’s road

The struggles continues
Good versus bad
Evil versus righteousness
It’s the same old story
It’s a brand new story
The voices no longer audible
But the battle scars are still present
It is Man’s will
That will ultimately decide
Peace or conflict
Heaven or hell
Not really sure who’ll be the winner
Just know that I’m at the crossroads
That fork on life’s road

poet Li Po

Amongst the flowers I
am alone with my pot of wine
drinking by myself; then lifting
my cup I asked the moon
