The Other Side

The Other Side
Tick Tock, Tick Tock, time rattles, the clock in the clock tower, flows forward!
Tick, tock, tick tock, time waits for no man.
There is a liar and a thief, Just One!!  For all other liars and thieves are his victims,
And he is the author of the illusion of fear, and the suffering that fear begets.
And he is the author of hatred, and the suffering that hatred begets.
And he is the author of death, and the suffering that death begets.
And when the clouds come overhead, and the whirlwind, grasps unsuspecting innocents,
He laughs in his deception, and attempts to convince even the elect, that the sun will
never shine.
But there is a tock, a tick, a time, that waits for no man, not even him.
And time and time again, when we hold on, when we endure, the SON Comes!!
And light reigns anew,
So I tell you, to my students and teachers of a younger generation,
Fear not, for the storm is upon us, and we are a misjudged and misunderstood species,
But in the end, if we look with waiting, for the sun on the other side of the whirlwind,
If we continue to look toward that SON!!
Then we will get to the other side.
Tick, Tock, Tick, Tock, time waits for no man.
And if we endure, then we will outlast the rager!!!
