Society Rises – Tamara Robalo

What would a blind man do 

In a land of foreign views? 

Why would the rain fall down 

In an ocean of hot sand blue? 
I’ve been walking through a desert 

Full of people and white venom 

I have seen the children smoking 

Drowing slowly, singing hungry 
They found an escape 

On the exit mind gate 

The simple twist of fate 

The Running 

Round and Around 
Heaven is on the otherside, they say 

So don’t live, let yourself die instead 
Do they believe in afterlife? 

Have they seen the rich man cry? 
Their whispered voices 

Sing in the Winter’s evening of life 

Like Christian songs at the ears of the deaf 

In the darkness of the light
