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
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
