Finding reasons to live through it

Flickers of flames Licking embers Slowly but surely Do you see that? Fire is catching Fire is catching Fire is catching Every single Pair of eyes Glued on the screen Following the recent reports People kissing and raising their Three middle fingers of their Left hand One by one It’s the modern Salem witch trial Lightly spoken words Uttered with no precaution With honesty and independence Taken offensively Interpreted in the opposite direction Misjudged Misunderstood And finally Leaving one lonely They’re burning the witches Anyone who doesn’t take The side of “justice” But it isn’t just Two sides of the same penny It isn’t just Yin and Yang There’s more than one Angles and shades Impossible to Count and keep track of them All Not all of each are Spoken out for Where were you When Gondor fell? The other kingdoms were and Are falling into flames And Continuing on Kingdoms are still burning Surely but slowly When you were needed most You were not there And now You seek Gondor’s support There may come A time of peace However Day by day Witches were burnt at the stake For years and years This world Life is full of suffering It’s hard The world is cursed But still We find reasons To keep living
