The Star, The Poet, And The Madman Poem by Marilou Madrazo

The Star, The Poet, And The Madman

Rating: 5.0


I looked up the night sky
and saw a lonely star
I tried to send my greeting from afar
But I thought I was wrong after a bit
It wasn' t a lonely star after all but the brightest

Look beyond and you' ll see
Things aren' t always seem
As we thought they supposed to be

I met a homeless man
Out in the street
And I felt sorry for him and his fate
But I realize I was wrong one day
When he handed me a beautiful poetry

Look beyond and you' ll see
Things aren' t always seem
As we thought they supposed to be

And then there' s this madman
Sitting beside the riverbank
I felt the weight of enslavery of one' s mind
But then I was wrong again
For in his twisted reality he was a freeman

Look beyond and you' ll see
Things aren' t always seem
As we thought they supposed to be
