The world became very proud

And doubts that it will get better

Creates a profound trail

In the heart of man.


Calm your soul in the blink of an eye

We gave existence blindly

For a species of existence.

And the jacket of wisdom has an expiration date

And we still ask “Why”?


Love suffers pain posthumously

And pray to God for forgiveness

We admire the sweet smile

Sour, but smile


We sold our possessions for love

Cast doubt on the ground itself

And inevitably gave root

Just for a glimmer of hope


We drew on the variety of existence

We called a delicious call

Chest pressure, pain

Unfulfilled love


A notorious liar

Suffers variations


People remain unfulfilled

Looking for love in everything!
