As The Wheel Of Time Turns

As the wheel of time turns..
Fallen souls are forgotten,
Their presence unoticed,
Their remains hidden behind closed
coffins. As the wheel of time turns..
Fragile youth continues to shed tears.
Mourning over beloved ones,
Sadly victims of these tragic years. As the wheel of time turns..
Yesterday's young becomes today's
mothers.
Their lechery engenders responsibility,
An innocent child raised without a father. As the wheel of time turns..
Societies truth is concealed in brown
bottles.
The WISE procreating its pleasures,
The OTHERWISE consumes to cease amid
problems. As the wheel of time turns..
Common love gradually disapears.
Hatred & jealousy commences,
A troubled kind now living in fear. As the wheel of time turns..
Apostle prayer is overwhelmed by
witchcraft.
Immorality haunts the black community,
Our companionship with the Lord now
ripped apart. As the wheel of time turns..
I'll cease today before I leave
tommorow,
Cleanse my depths of sorrow
& contrive in the footsteps that I should
follow. But when the wheel of time has stopped
turning..
Jolly not in laughter for in Philosophy I
know:
'It is man who pass by time,
She remains...we sadly go.'
