Solemn Truth


It's a sad solemn truth
This sad solemn lie.
Just taken from our youth
Was it worth it to try?

We can precieve what we need.
If what we want doesn't get in our way.
But it always will, always will.

It's a sad solemn truth
This sad solemn life
Just taken from our world
Was it worth the strife?

We can precieve what's believed.
Or you can read into this solemn life
But you never will, never will...

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
