The Life Of Man Is A Story
The life of man is a story, listen:
The life of man is a horse, a father
and his child: The child rides the horse and he's
abused of manners by friendly strangers.
The father rides the horse and he's abused
of sympathy by vain lips that babble.
The father and the child rides; yet unwell,
Parrot lips yell "you want to kill the horse!?"
They walk along with the horse; no one rode...
People called them fool, and their ears are full.
The life of man isn't straight, its clutched, ebbed
and circled with dirty lips and sweet mouth,
But the life is a rope to a palm tree.
The life of man is a nostalgic sky
But the hand cannot touch the neck, but he
has a will to touch the sky, like his eyes.
