A Paradise Forever Lost

IMG_0092

Life starts with a big boom,

Nine months later a child exits their Mother’s womb,

In a room,

Out from the darkness, virgin eyes will see the sunshine soon,

The universe is a gorgeous garden,

Full of spiritual and physical growth, flowers in bloom,

But the garden is far from perfect,

But there is a patch that wears a costume,

Hiding the rotten apples, destroying a section of the garden,

A family heirloom,

Generation after generation,

Brainwashing our precious children in fluorescent lighted classrooms,

Spoonfed lies,

Flowers will die,

Damaged petals caused by violence andpoverty, doom and gloom,

We consume negative energy,

There is an elephant in the room,

To rise up from the bottom our children eat shrooms,

 

The World was once beautiful like a Van Goph and Monet painting,

Somebody destroyed it at what cost?

Pure beauty was burnt by perpetual flames,

Damaged beyond repair, irreplaceable, a Paradise lost,

The hearts and souls of men were once warm,

Now they are colder than ice and frost,

The raping of Mother Earth, plus a never ending Holocaust,

Equals a Paradise forever lost,

 

Meadows and valleys, mammoth mountains,

Animals and rivers run wild,

The sun smiles and shines,

Watching over me his innocent child,

I’ve travelled a thousand miles,

Birds fly high up in in the bright blue sky,

One day they will die and so will I,

Nothing physically lasts forever, a dramatic demise,

The clouds start to cry,

Perennial Paradise on Earth turned into recurring nightmares,

And into perpetual pain,

A political chess game, economical, monetary gain,

The brain of the World became insane,

Violence occurs everyday, such a terrible shame,

But we are to blame, victims are scorching in the blazing flames,

Materialism and fame, replaced nature and the tame…

Soul, the whole race is besmirching Mother Earth’s name,

Universal acclaim became universal disdain,

Only broken bones and egotistical evil demons remain,

I miss the sunshine, but Mother Earth is in pain,

And that is why it continues to rain,

 

The World was once beautiful like a Van Goph and Monet painting,

Somebody destroyed it at what cost?

Pure beauty was burned by perpetual flames,

Damaged beyond repair, irreplaceable, a Paradise lost,

The hearts and souls of men were once warm,

Now they are colder than ice and frost,

The raping of Mother Earth, plus a never ending Holocaust,

Equals a Paradise forever lost,

 

We have polluted this once perfect Planet,

like a fiendish pregnant girl polluting her womb…

With dangerous drugs, alcohol, strong liquor and cigarette fumes,

My rhymes impugn the elite, impeach,

I question their motives when I speak in rooms,

A rich tycoon…

Will never understand the weak and the poor,

Uncouth baboons,

This is reality,

This isn’t some early morning cartoon,

Unpleasant prunes, I’m immune…

To lies, my eyes only see the truth,

Your disguise doesn’t fool me, I exhume…

True thoughts turned corpse, my camera eyes zoom,

My memory records new discoveries hidden in buried tombs,

The marriage of truth and wisdom, bride and groom,

I inhale their aftershave and perfume,

We are all spiritual caterpillars trying to break free,

From the cocoon,

And morph and evolve into spiritual butterflies,

Fluttering our wings, flying skyward up to the moon,

The universe is a spiritual palace, Earth is just one of its many rooms,

We are all Intergalactic Kings and Queens,

Golden royalty like Tutankhamen,

We are too blind to see the God within our Souls,

It is trapped in a tomb as our bodies inhale Hell’s fumes,

 

The World was once beautiful like a Van Goph and Monet painting,

Somebody destroyed it at what cost?

Pure beauty was burned by perpetual flames,

Damaged beyond repair, irreplaceable, a Paradise lost,

The hearts and souls of men were once warm,

Now they are colder than ice and frost,

The raping of Mother Earth, plus a never ending Holocaust,

Equals a Paradise forever lost.
