A chapter in the book The Different Faces Of Love


by RGstar


They see no hope, they say it lies
They feel no wind, they say it cries
They hear no words, or lame disguise
They taste no worth, no compromise

Yet you say you are blue for your shoes aren't new
And you say you care, but your wealth is bare
And when you kneel to pray, not much to say
Quickly turn the page and walk away

And if morning comes, they care not
Because they dream of things they have not
whatever fate now brings, they fear not
A little mother's milk, they know not

And still your lawns cropped neatly so
And tonight red wine will ebb and flow
And your cocktails, primed with strawberries, glow
And you'll swear you care but your pockets are low

Tears of conscience on salted tongue
A drink of pride, but no song sung
As darkness uncoils its deadly rung
The venom strikes and young lives stung

And your handbag is made of snakeskin
While their soles and feet let air in
As the crumbs they find now wears thin
forever destined life; a soiled bin

So don't tell me tonight that your stars are blue
And the sun does not shine as it used to do
And the moon declines its silhouetted hue
And how the trees confine and blight your view

When flowers in your garden are just for you
And the blossoms only bloom for the chosen few.


Earned A Seal Of Quality

A change of rhythm but still the same beat; its motto:
We are but one though different we may be.

Give when you can - Care when you can...

...Any child, anywhere in the world, for any reason. They carry the innocence we are so determined to destroy.
