My brother-friend tried me
So much that i have to push the wall close to the fence
There my enemy saw me and the way i push
He smiled recklessly in mourning
Inside his mind his words speaks loud
How i wish the wall he push will fall the fence he protects
But the tried of a brother-friend
Made me know no wall or regard those fences
Little the efforts of the fence presses
As it pushes hard some messages
Millions of years you built this unique strong fence
You gave all against life for the fence
But lo and behold, you are damning nothing
Worth the fence to spoil the fence
I never knew you have this strength to push the wall
We could have built stronger fence in this fence
We could have made our strong hold stronger with higher hold
And made it a bit beautiful for the world to see
 But to me the war has been decided
I will tell him my other coin of peace
For peace he taught he knew but i know more
It is not the peace that coin all time
And peace i know at this time is not resolution
But telling him that no one touches the scorpion tail
Without a stinky bite from the tail
Yea, i am happy he felt my bite
Oh, i have spoilt the fence by falling it down
It now has dawn on me
That i am no longer protected
For i have made more enemies see my weak point
I have sold my cover
The world now know who i am
Where i hide my strength
The store house of my weakness
As i long and desired to built back the fence
Even if it will no longer be the unique strong fence
But let me at least cover my nakedness 
And the harm is been done
How i wish i know thee peace
How i wish i held thee oh peace
How i wish i understand thee before i did thee
For anger is worth deadly but not in peace
For peace protects, yet he calleth me in gentility
To wisdom out the value of its components, its doing
The future of what no man seeth
