all apples tasted the same
no one had evil to bestow
I was but a lonely flame
just another Jane Doe.
But life challenges all smiles,
takes away what’s sure,
barrages you in trials
and leaves you to endure.
I cry, though not for them:
the carcass of society.
who are we to condemn
a fight for the Almighty?
Though I was a bystander
I was pushed to lead
a modest commander
a virgin to greed.
Let the cries for freedom run
fight the evils of totalitarian men.
My words against your gun,
your crown against my pen.
Humankind's declaring self-destruction
we bring forth our own death
they only care about oil production
take for granted our last breath.
And though we bled from wounds
that came from a common pain
tyranny and saddened tunes
poverty forgotten, monarchs drink champagne.
only knowledge can make us turn
unity should not be strange
love cannot be learned
for only then our world we'll change.
When land and water are over copper
and we speak with louder voices
only then will our world prosper:
once we join to fight the poison
