Facing truths from the past

A human face on the mirror

Reveals distaste with extremes.


Teeming with gaze at lights

Malaise and decay

Wrap his or her head.


A beautiful music on the background

Tone down the tyranny

Allow to speak in low voice.


There is tidiness in the air

A slap on the face

The unintended resonance.


We speak life here

A place not worth going down

Stars laugh at the spirit of openness.

    True enough,’Truth’ is a perfect “slap in the face”……on our not so desirable worldly ways ,which the “stars laugh at……” from up there!——the music seeming to “tone down the tyranny”!
