…   …   …

It was a a straw holocaust

It was a mountain burning

It was two long hot summers

It was a teacher frowning

It was my alma mata

It was the beginning of time

It was the end of my days

It was a global warning

It was a day to end all others

It was a day to stand as brothers

It was a day to start again

A day we felt no pain

It was a day that never ends

A day you spend with friends

It was love that burned a river

It was a day that gave us hope

It was a day like nothing ever

It was a comet in the sky

It was snow and rain and ice

It was a day full of surprise

It was the day I mourned my mother

It was the day I loved my lover

It was the day of sons and daughters

A day of joy and laughter 




…   …   …

why do we build people up

only then to knock them down
