Legends came and went,
Books we wrote about them,
In schools we taught them,
Syllabus changed in time,
Books replaced by the new,
Only to study new legends,
Through time some faded,
History they became.
A beautiful past they painted,
More colourful till yesterday,
Today our tears drop on beauty,
A beautiful seed they planted.
That was yesterday…

What we face today…
As our tears drop on beauty,
 A beautiful ground they left,
Yet our seeds drop on gravel.
Why have we walked out Eden?
As we lost true doctrines:
Love, faith, peace, humbleness…
A new doctrine we planted:
Greed, adultery, power, gossip…
A lost generation we became.
Even the devil can’t trust us,
For money we sold our kids,
Our bodies became play grounds,
Erections took duty of the mind,
Our covenant became defiled.

As we face tomorrow…
Books faded with time,
Their message became irrelevant,
Yet one book remained,
The book with the true doctrine,
That destroyed religion,
An introduction into fellowship,
A blessed sweet communion,
Through Jesus our brother,
Let’s return to our true origin,
Were beauty is not physical,
Family tree include neighbour,
Fathers filled with compassion,
Humbleness the new hunk,
A new foundation built on LOVE.
