A thousand years in the continuity of life,
A thousand summers bloomed.
Dewy freshness and dancing peacocks,
Crumpled autumn leaves.
And so a lifetime be gone
Except here I stand questioning the Heavens above;
"Hallowed be Thy Name
Why this lifeless existence?"
"Why teacheth Thou this heart to beat?
Why teacheth Thou this heart to bleed?
Why giveth Thou this soul to be?
Why giveth Thou this mortal heed?"
Shooting meteors and turning fates,
Buried morals and broken spirits,
All but one remains firmly unshaken;
Questions of a lifeless existence.
