The Young Man

The silence of the minority
Can’t break the wall of waves.
Inside the glass of water
In the hand of the young man.
With his dream of social wonders
Inside the cage of life.

The quietness of the lonely ones
Can’t wake up the sweet sleep
Of the injured innocence
Behind the drunken hills.
On the river of innocence
He lost his hopeful fears.

And the breeze of vanity
Caresses the blue grass of home,
With the holiness
And the glory of the sun;
And the dream of immortality
Dies under the black sun.

And the breeze of social wonders
Blew him on top of the hill.
Inside the dream of social wonders
Inside the cage of life,
And he won’t slip down,
He can’t slip down.
