Of old man’s eyes and bitter lies

Of old man’s eyes and bitter lies

Often human birds sang of life

cocoons of bitter experience filled

but butterflies sang of joy

no – I cannot comprehend their melody

fine rhapsodies of jail time

they played

but the mortal is beyond comprehension

but the mortal is beyond liberation

of father of Gods (set in three)

give me wisdom of fright

(set me free)

why won’t you see the perils of greed?

(set me free)

Of old man's eyes and bitter lies

    1. It is very difficult indeed, even I have a hard time explaining it. To put it short: Mankind can never understand the basic needs of nature, and other creatures, and because they (we) lack understanding of such things, mankind is never content, fearing change and the future, while guided and motivated solely by greed.
