My New Year Enigma

Tell me… Mama
Should I be born into this world?
To witness mankind annihilated by mankind?

In the name of survival
They mongered it would’t be a matter
That was the root of struggle
To annex who is better

Tell me … Mama
Should I be born into this world?
To witness mankind perished by mother natures?

The winds aren’t friendly
The earths are shaky
The ocean could be deadly
The weather is sometimes so nasty
The hole in the sky is so unpredictably

Millennium after millennium
Another New Year dawning
Another new episode of life unleashed

Don’t tell me… Mama
Is it worth living?
Who is righteous to sustain sorrow or happiness?
For another New Year dawning
Is another revelation of truthness

Happy New Year
