Dynasty Of Arrogance
The night is taken by the rain.
Someone came out of the mirror
in my lone bedroom and said:
'I want to stay awake with you! '
It is dark outside and flooding insane.
The high ambition is down to the knee
And a dynasty of arrogance is diminished
like a straw going down the stream.

Look, observe the wandering boy,
Candid charms blooming in his eyes face and heart___
In the unrestricted sky self-created canopy of dreams he spreads
Passing the scorching noon from shades to shades,
Now he lays straight___ sleeping sound.
Fragrance of flowers and wings of hiding worms he loves
Sharp thorns he considers his favorite objects of his aim
