We Will Rise


The walls are closing in
Shackles around my feet
However much I try
I was born not to beat

He created us equal
Like two peas in a pod
Existence alone is in vain
That’s the edict of god

Who created the rules
Why am I forced to rot
Expectation is subservience
Life is smaller than a dot

There is world out there
I want to taste it free
I want to be a bird
Flying high and carefree

Yes I am soft
Yes I am less strong
Do not test my resolve
Time again proven wrong

The gods depend on me
The demons tamed sublime
My wrath can unleash fury
When you cross the line

Ourselves we will educate
We are here to stay
Those who walk over us
Will have a price to pay

How long will you hide us
Behinds those tall walls
Suppressing Enlightenment
Is like stopping dayfall

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
to drink with me, its reflection
and mine in the wine cup, just
