O Heavens, I Cry

O heavens, open your eyes,
Read my sad penned story,
Written before and after my 
foot prints,

Open your eyes, O heavens,
See my tears falling down
Streaming to rivers of violent 
waters,
Eroding bridge walls in freedom 
search

O heavens, look down
Not beneath where all is 
concealed
But see the insanities that 
engulf our existence
And left our souls to wander 
the abyss of 
Tartarus

Below is the earth, O heavens,
Drinking on the blood of 
children
Slain by the sword of 
democracy
And eatern by the vultures of 
politics

O heavens, before your sight
The children stand naked in 
sorrow
Their flesh bruised by the 
fathers' iniquities
And their minds soaked in the 
lies of the council,

Above and above, O heavens,
Listern to the voice singing 
below
Hear the pain from mama's 
heart
As swords are sharpened by 
the fathers' pride
And the call is for the bullet to 
sound

O heavens of Gods
Here the harp strings are 
broken
Listern the music rhythm is lost
In the chaos of their minds and 
souls
Fathers dance to the sounds of 
death

The earth is blind
Nude she walks around
Miserable and wretched
And she knows not her shame.
