We are ecological science

We are story

The song

Premium Member When I Came Home
When I came home
I understood
that nothing could be the same

I’d never perceive
the world like you
after the horrors--- that I'd seen 

I can hear
the roaring thunder 
bombs--- exploding on the deck

sidewinder rockets 
scaring more--- than just the ship

INC Radio Station Manager
Brother Arnel Solano

For his great dedication.

The sublime shows are channeled
Into aim so marvelous.

The Intelligence Of Tuna
There where the tuna sleep mighty
Wet as usual imprisoned in ocean
There are creatures above with poles
The oxygen nitrogen breathers 
The ones with limbs on their sides
With eyes facing front fashioned to hunt
Beings that live in the thin environment

That instead of pumping red, they pump blue into the body of steel.
Maybe when they take their first breathes, some specs of evil enter their little lungs,

Extricated from chains of religious fanaticism
Here am I, your dear heart*, blissfully exultant
Freely exalting the gracious Redeemer
Whose compassion reached out to your soul
Pardoning you against everlasting condemnation.

Quickened toward great revival from lukewarm fellowship
Here am I, your dear heart, triumphantly rejoicing

From Death to Life
A leaf on a big tree was happily hanging 
Favorably for every passer-by just to see
He was appreciatively coloured green
Like a bean, he was very much attractive

A treacherous wind rose up to shake’im fall
Forcibly, on the ground he landed green

If I am Syrian, what of it?

Mother Nature's Early Menopause

We forced her into menopause way before her time 
Prematurely Mother Nature’s in menopause
and we’ll regret of our crime.
We cut off her tresses that once bushed across her land 
Polluted her oceans and soiled her golden sand.

Getting old I view death differently,

Recalling both the good days and the bad. 

Eventually, everyone will die

And death should be as momentous as birth

Tomorrow's sunrise grieves today's sunset.

Escaping the confines of the body

Souls seek out higher planes of existence.

isolation so shelled-over,
so embedded,
you are sure we are each and all
unredeemably alone

In our envy of others,
