We Never Learn

We never learn
We keep being a fool in following rule
We lazily think before with our own head

I should move but I glued on my sofa
I should go but I tarry my feet
I should have rest but I exhaust myself
I should sleep but I still open my eyes

We never learn
We keep repeating the same old mistake
And history is always going into cycle

I should believe but I don't want to listen
I should protect but I only give the pain
I should love but easy is ignorance
I should watch but I don't pay attention

We never learn
We keep our stubborn head
We never look around and just fulfill our desire

I should be strong but I don't find any reason
I should be in control but I lose my rational mind
I should be brave but I'm weak
I should be happy but I'm always lonely

We never learn
We keep forgetting the good and falling back to the root
We drown in the dream, never live in the real

I should be smarter but I deceived again
I shouldn't be allured but I swayed in instance
I should be patient but I can't wait for more
I should be good but nobody's care after all

"Heaven"—is what I cannot reach!
The Apple on the Tree—
Provided it do hopeless—hang—
That—"Heaven" is—to Me!
