When It's Gone

When It’s Gone

On this evening I didn’t know if this enticing land will be gone

My thoughts keep on worrying about something

Something that will turn this land dark and gray

Like a fading photos from yesterday

So I take a quill over the cluttered backyard 

And write something that will keep me motionless

If only this ground was not injured

If only this calm ground was kept holy

Somehow we will not be like this

We will be not be regretful of what we’ve done 

Somehow we will not wait for the clouds to turn dull

For the ocean to soar high and for the mighty trees to tumble

And as my blood scatters under the moonlight

And when the morning light make it dry

I will wish this enticing land to be safe in another moment

I will wish a bountiful period where natives lend their sincere affection
