Illusion

Seeds of hope that's planted deep Deep beneath the illusion of shade A shade of light, a spark of joy Just an illusion that turns to grey Been waiting too long, hope is owned Owned by the stars and bright big moon Moon in the day, an illusion we see It will be the same again for might it be The fruit swells as the deeds of it Deeds that were good but weak Weak was the soul and strong was the gloom Gloomy day and the sun it was all doomed Own was the enemy, others were kind Kind to the sparkling joyous soul Soul hath be kind, it was all need In reality it was just an illusion of greed I've got no hate or grudge against 'em Just the soul now wants to stay away For I was just a child in need of help Got bitter words when needed light and rays Doom in the day some spark at night That's all I've got to see if I'm right Night and day it feels the same indeed For I was once a soul with happiness in need Though the gloom takes over today There'll be a day I'll loose that within Within the boundaries that's fair and just To this soul once and for all
