FREE CEE some are unable to listen to abel


One would have to be a dope 
to believe “where there’s life there is hope
that which I maintain was proved by Abel and Cain
and I say where there’s life there is pain

I tried to tell the woman I never came to touch
But she thought my beliefs were far too much
I tried to teach her to feel with her heart rather than her hand
But the pretty lady just couldn’t understand

The closest I got was when she said “maybe”
When I said to the lovely “listen to me baby
I felt her uneasiness from two feet away
And perhaps that is why she wouldn’t believe in what I had to say

All this man ever wanted was to edify the uneducated
And about all the hopes and dreams, that by life, are truncated
With life comes aches and discomfort difficult to endure
And where there is life there is too often never a cure

There is no treatment for a broken spirit and heart
Especially for those whose life is falling apart
Where there is life there is disease, depression and disdain
And if you don’t believe me read about Abel and Cain
