Society Rises - Poem by Tamara Robalo

What would a blind man do
In a land of foreign views?
Why would the rain fall down
In an ocean of hot sand blue?

I've been walking through a desert
Full of people and white venom
I have seen the children smoking
Drowing slowly, singing hungry

They found an escape
On the exit mind gate
The simple twist of fate
The Running
Round and Around

Heaven is on the otherside, they say
So don't live, let yourself die instead

Do they believe in afterlife?
Have they seen the rich man cry?

Their whispered voices
Sing in the Winter's evening of life
Like Christian songs at the ears of the deaf
In the darkness of the light

Topic(s) of this poem: new, reality


Poet's Notes about The Poem

After experiencing reality and watching society, you get the feeling we cannot go lower in moral perspective, we simply must rise.
