A SORROWFUL MYSTERY


What a life we are all living in
Where there are so many ironic feelings
A place where every thing seem like a mystery
Especially when think of all your misery
A place where people feel abhorrent
Over their fellow human who have wealth in abundant
A place where some people get what they want on a plater of gold
While others are been left outside in the cold
A place where corruption is at it prime
Where people find joy in violence and crime
A place where trust can never be found
And where betrayer is in abound
A place where some suffers the pain of yesterday
While others enjoys the gain of today
A place where the existence of God is like a folk tale
To people who goes ' BEYOUND THE PALE '
A place where people live with a broken heart
With those whose lives have been torn apart
A place where some are shown so much care
While others are left to live their lives in fear
A place where people are shown hell
Even when they mean to do well
A place where people try to survive
Believing that one day they will be revive
A place full of hatred and greed
Where everyone follows the evil way like a creed
A place where dreams are shattered
And not given opportunity to be gathered
A place where innocent people are jailed
While the real culprit are bailed
A place where people don't get what they want with ease
Where everyday of their lives, they are been faced with abase
A place where people are denied love
And the only option to them is just to rove
A place where no one cares for the poor
Each time they are seen, they are shown the door
A place where money can buy you anything
But can't guarantee you everything
Then what's the essence of the existence of this place
Where brotherly love can never be trace
All it needs is a divine saviour
That will heal the broken heart of it survivors

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!
