Look Ye And See

O ye heavens
From thy dwelling
of no time 
The reside of the eterne
Where beings of beauty
and the good abode
Look and see
Below where streams
Flow tears 
and seas are crimson 

See our fathers taken 
Where fists are clinched 
with hate,
hearts weeping not
love deceased 
life having no forgiveness of 
the brawling of brothers

See our mothers sorrowed
with loneliness 
Weeping the son 
slaved to exist
Whilst they sit crowned 
on a scarlet coloured beast
holding a bow, 
hiding the arrow
Conquering and to conquer 
with deceit

See the land we plough
dry and barren
Giving birth to thorns 
and thistles of injustice
And conned democracy 
silencing freedom of our 
Denying children to eat 
of their father's struggles 
While they drink of our sweat
milk and honey 

See our streams 
in turbulence
flow tears of anguish 
Cried in silence of heart
betrayed by the ballot
Made captive 
by the hand 
that promised to feed
Peace in freedom of unity

See our dreams
In the thickest of darkness
haunted by nightmares
Of doom
Failing young hearts
Wandering empty streets
barefooted blistered
fighting handicapped
to exist while
Subdued by fear,
The sting of dictatorship

See tomorrow
of a generation I beget,
Poverty laden streets
rotten of incurable diseases
Bullets and bombs
for their pride and grandeur
Sucking innocent blood
strength of their existence
Till all that's left
Is tears we cry.

'See O thee that illuminates,
Take to remembrance 
evils of our elders
and shut thy moon 
her light before them
shine not stars
in darkness 
they seek friendship
Let tears of the sun flood their 
and erode their bridge walls
turning the hearts of their 
against desires they hold
making their household
a desolate plain'
