Oh, happiness

And kindness –

Where did you go?

 

Oh, arrogance,

Belligerence –

What do you know?

 

Entitlement

And ‘struggle-street’ –

Why do you stay?

 

Oh, affluence

And opulence –

Come back today!

 

Naïveté

And ignorance –

You’ve lost your voice!

 

Knowledge

And intelligence –

Bring me choice!

 

Oh, graciousness

And care –

Your heart is mine

 

Forgiveness,

Adoration –

My heart’s divine!
