Night beyond

Night beyond

It’s all about night beyond the muted voice
The music now clipped into the wall
Do not cry
For it may not work.

Let’s shed our thick skin
Raise the voice. Fight fire with fire
Not burnt out within!

Come all this way
The exchange is stable
War is fought by people not weapons.

Your words have more life in them
Million faces, million smiles.

    Truly inspirational ! Sobriety poignantly portrayed as the ideal tool to organize an effective resistance to the machinations of the ruthless enemy determined to provoke and create fissures within the ranks of the civil society.
