This city glitters in the dark

Triggers a string deep in my heart

I wonder what it has to say

Dance along or quietly pray?


Wandering-Lusting around for ages and more

To find a home, to rest, to reach a shore

I know nothing at all my Lord

Repetitive words I write

Oh I can’t even rhyme

Not a single silly stone is mine!


Call me Mother, call me to you

Lift me high up above

the sky

Caress me always, I will be true

Place your palm

on my aching head,

I cry!


Forgive my sins

I commit so often

Heaps of hatred and anger

Even the counts been forgotten!


Rise, Rise, Rise 

Breaking the chains that tie

The immortal being

Just longs to fly…
