Intuitive grasp of reality,
Illuminating discovery of possibilities,
Striking realization of vanity,
Manifestation of the essential.
Lots of lies I was brought up to believe...
Now I have to put it to sieve
The dead is appreciated
More than the living.
Pain essential for universal balance...
Pain essential to enlighten man...
Pain controls man...
Man must know pain...
Hard work doesn’t guarantee success.
Some are poor to maintain balance
Balance crucial for universal survival;
Some must be poor for the others to be rich.
Man’s nature is betrayal
As forever is never;
Good things must end
Good memories can’t stay forever.
We all have dreams, aspirations, hopes
Sadly deep down you know you won’t accomplish all.
In your prime
You look at your kids hoping,
Pushing them to the edge
To acquire the dreams,
I hope to be internationally known
By my works
I might never publish them;
In my prime I will.
Look back at this days with nostalgia and regret
The world never knew me
Just another breadwinner
With dreams that never survived.
Counting on his son,
Hoping he doesn’t fail like me,
Pushing him to his edge,
One last futile attempt;
To leave my footprints
In the sands of Time...
