I imagine by referendum,     you exclude us,
What are we, to be exact?
Must lack of experience correlate to lack of knowledge?
I beg to differ–
Time has never driven in reverse–
this is our world as well,
and if      nature stays its course,
Our dreams and fears should come before the old,
We are…..aren’t we……..the future      You?

Come, jump off your high horse,
what do you know of us?
I imagine your decisions are for the better cause,
How can you without our dreams?
And when finally we become you too,
we should know very well      too well,
Rulers never rule the right time,
Time moves, trends die, what was will fly away.

Pardon us sir,      have we snarled too much?
Excuse us underdogs,
We have no manners in this matter,
Lead on, protect the past
let the future wreck,
let us swallow your leftovers–

Children always did what they were told.

I.

Through the waterfall,
pass moss-ridden rocks,
caves lined with golden light,
Bridge up ahead.

Stone stairs down, down
the mountain side,
Silver-dressed warriors,
Silver-sashed manes.

A thin river slithers,
kisses layered rocks,
On top—bright lit,
Sail-like buildings glow.

Blood orange sky,
Taupe-colored clouds,
Hang silent, untouched,
Spellbind land.

You’ve got me wrapped around your finger,
Birth till now, I’m just a doll,
Your word, my word, I yield
my essence.
Push me till I drop.

Life is uncertain as well as unfair,
Single instant, lost disposition,
Who am I to you?
Someone new,
Bitter tempest on the loose.

You’ve choked every breath from my chest,
But then the unthinkable,
I say “No”
Force exhausted
You’ve lost me.
