One People Same Story


If you have a story to tell, don't hesitate
The world is always in a haste
If I hurt you don't hold back, tell me
I might be able to hold down

Night crawl over our roof
because morning smile at our windows
Might makes the man
because the mile breaks the carmel

Poets put words to together
Critics put asunder therein
Tell your story to a playwright
he might be able to stage a play

Whatever the story might be
However the depth of the injury
Wherever life takes you
Always tell your side of the story

History was written by men for men
Posterity depends on our stories to excel
Be a brother, share the story
Life is too boring to be too quiet

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
