Living today

Where are the secrets, the faith and the passion? Money and business are now in the fashion. There is no romance, there is no love, there are no bird songs in the skies above. There is no green grass, and forests and flowers, only shriveling deserts and pale fading colors. Cables and wires are strangling us tight, smog hides the stars, you can't see them at night. There is much science, but not many wisdom, too much revolutions, but not enough freedom. Wise man, and prophets and heroes are vanishing, everything good is perished and banishing. Dragons, elfs, fairies are facing extinction even kids don't want to read that old fiction. Undiscovered lands are no longer remaining from adventures and brave feats everyone is abstaining. There is no justice and no human rights, no satisfaction, only body delights. Compassion and virtue are not common today should be greedy and shameless if you want to stay. There is no hope and no joy, you can find only sadness in these poor human souls, lost in the madness. God stays in darkness, forgotten and blind, He's no longer able to control human mind. There isn't much left you now could believe, only in dreams you can find some relief.
