Time's Tunnels!


After 50 years with my life;
But, i am still looking through the dark end of the tummel before me,
And, waiting for the light to come out of it one day.

The rules of life!
Always with the codes of love;
But, 'Ladies First'! !
All in the name of the muse of mankind,
But, i have learnt a lot after 50 years.

Life!
Of love;
Life!
Of hate;
Life!
With the muse of peace in the land of joy;
At, art!
However, my best friends have become my enemies today;
Due to one reason or the other.

Life on this earth,
Combined with hate and love;
But, why is mankind like that?
With, killers and thieves.

Cash is king!
In the Electric Room;
'La Esquina'!
Money is defence;
And like the muse of a sofa at the centre of your room.

Ecstasy!
To drop out;
And like a blind barber sitting next to you.
Time's tummels!
Camp VI;
JTF Guantanamo! !
And, like a blind barber at work.
