Life will keep rolling on

Trees will age and their leaves will dwindle,
Seasons will scamper on,
a quarter of the world will lie arid, the other will negotiate a storm,
you and I will passively watch, and,
Life will keep rolling on,

Hearts will be broken and lovers forgotten,
Romeos will still be born,
Integrity and honor will be spoken, by ideological whores blowing their horns,
You and I will abandon our voices, and,
Life will keep rolling on

Innocents will be hung, and the guilty exalted,
welfare groups will still be formed,
sermons will be fed to the starving, Priests will proclaim the Lord,
You and I will sing our hymns, and,
Life will keep rolling on,

Millions will be butchered for money, religion and power,
Babies will still be borne,
The nourished will be guilty of gluttony, the hungry will learn to starve,
You and I will simply sigh, and,
Life will keep rolling on,

The seeds will sprout again, the flowers will return,
Our hearts will forgive once more,
People will forget today like it was yesterday, and tomorrow will give them hope,
You and I will exonrate our misdeeds, and,
Life will keep rolling on

Silent Vow

Read to me some eloquent poetry,
Play to me a mesmerizing score,
Dance for me in those scorching heels,
Please my senses, put on a grand show,
Let time stand still, let your body sway,
to the music, to the moment and the madness in play,
Let your eyes pierce their way into the tattered drapes of my soul,
Make torrid love to me like a man on death row,
When we're famished lie beside me, collect me in your embrace,
Kiss me softly but linger so the pain leaves no trace,
Let your timid beauty be the only memory I recall,
Let our vanity be the venom that fulfills our silent vow.
