Another child shed a tear
Another innocent suffer
Another rich becomes victory
Another flower lose its petal
Poet continues to writes

Another bright new day appear
Once more the night falls
Another season has arrive
The poor continues to lose hope
Without a word of encouragement

The hard heart
The richest
Do not even feel pity
What they have said is enough
If their plate is full
That's all that matter

Poor the homeless
They have to live with that
This suffering...
And getting insulting
More further than earth
Singers continues to sing

Another innocent pled guilty
The guilty claps hands
For how long
Innocent needs to pay
For the debt of culpability
