God Or Man - Poem by Lubna Hazeem

You fell in my arms
Like a helpless child
Tired of being strong
Against unfair trials

Corruption revolts
In our desperate lives
Let vengeance dissolve
Against goodness might

Why do cheaters cheat?
Why do losers lose?
Who is the enemy?
I only know you

And we stare at the sun
As the wind drifts along
Carrying these questions
High, above and beyond

Who do you trust?
Who carries you up?
It's time to ask yourself
Who will you forever love?

God or man?
Your own hands?
Beyond these lands
I've known differently

I've known wars
I've been cursed
I've known violence
And I've known worse

I've known you differently
Won't you ever believe me?

Who is god?
Who is man?
They don't know which is which
To me, that's the ultimate glitch

Above the sea
There lies land
And above you and me
There's a sky so bland

God or man?
God or man?
Who are we?
Where we stand?

Body or soul?
Who takes control?
Who are we, who are we?
If everything's meant to go

Everything's meant to cease
And nothing's ever meant to be
And now i ask, why do you love me?

If im a dream and you're meant to wake?
And if im but the sky that's meant to break?
Will you never answer, for the sake of anger?
I say never but for god's sake, for god's sake
