    When shall I cry another poem?
    When the entire world has lost its hope in men,
    I shall be the one to restore their minds and recapture their sins.
    When shall I cry another love poem?
    In the days when men can no longer love
    Women who no longer want to be loved,
    I shall be the one to shatter doubt in all empty souls
    I shall be the one to inspire them to love

    When shall I cry another “black poem”?
    Right after terror has been sewed in so many hearts
    I shall be the one to degrade the human being
    Who has instilled such thoughts
    I shall be the one to rise above all evils to guide the strong
    ‘Cause not all of MY people weaken from simple phrases
    “*****…you dumb illiterate *****…you no good ***** !” in these days
    I will be the one to take a stand for MY people
    I will be the one to yell “Freedom!” for my people

    When shall I cry another “social poem”?
    After all adolescents have disregarded your intellectual, friendly, sexy, intriguing, conversationalist-self
    After your peers have written a book on being cool
    After your peers have contaminated your thoughts
    And decided that you’re still not as cool as them,
    I shall be the one to re-establish your true character
    I shall be the one to announce to the world that no one is as cool as they may seem
    And if acceptance is such a gift of honor
    Then I accept not being accepted, I accept not being cool
    I shall be the one to lead these people away from these cool fools

    When shall I cry another poem about I?
    When all souls have scattered and the only one left is I,
    Then I will begin to cry
    For weakness is a tear I will not cry in front of prowling eyes

    When shall I cry another honest poem?
    When I am the only one standing
    Because the truth is not what people want to hear,
    Or maybe we do…we enjoyed Michael Jackson’s truthful secrets
    Laughed for days…maybe we do enjoy the truth
    When it’s not US who are being made the fools

    When shall I cry another love poem?
    When shall I cry another love?
    When shall I cry another?
    When shall I cry?
    When shall I?
    When shall?
    When?
    After the entire world has lost its hope in men,
    I shall be the one to restore their minds and recapture their sins.
    In the days when men can no longer love
    Women who no longer want to be love,
    I shall be the one to shatter doubt in all empty souls
    I shall be the one to inspire them to love
    Right after terror has been sewed in so many hearts
    I shall be the one to degrade the human being
    Who has instilled such thoughts
    I shall be the one to rise above all evils to guide the strong
    I will be the one to take a stand for MY people
    I will be the one to yell “Freedom!” for my people
    After your peers have written a book on being cool
    After your peers have contaminated your thoughts
    And decided that you’re still not as cool as them,
    I shall be the one to re-establish your true character
    And if acceptance is such a gift of honor
    Then I accept not being accepted, I accept not being cool
    I shall be the one to lead these people away from these cool fools
    When all souls have scattered and the only one left is I,
    Then I will begin to cry
    For weakness is a tear I will not cry in front of prowling eyes
    When will you cry another poem?
