Let It Be!
POETRY FORMAT, 5 Jun 2017
Let it be! Let the rich man
Lose his stolen millions.
Let the poor man stop moaning,
And let a bird fly again in the sky!
Let the ice of silence disappear,
Let the greedy amass their money
For the funeral repast,
Let a little aspen stop trembling,
Let vampires choke drinking our blood.
Let eternity open all the secrets,
Let all haughty men be scorned,
Let the blind man see again,
Let sages find the roots of wisdom!
Let everyone see the blue sky,
Let the worthless stay insignificant.
Maybe you’ll tell me that it is impossible,
We have not enough bread to feed everyone,
Perhaps you’ll tell me that this is nothing
But the idle fancies of a strange poet…
Let’s try, people, step-by-step,
Maybe we can change this world!
