    Man of a thousand voices,
    listen as they speak the souls.
    like the covers of an old tree,
    that slowly relinquish the covers of its bark.
    Malicious powers of enemies, repenting of what said then,
    and consciously repeated through the Universe.
    Reluctant of dreams that disinterred into ashes
    Revelation of crying change.

    Manipulating words of understanding,
    crying to be freed.
    History of a past,
    no conscious of future,
    the voices gather in circles,
    when will man change.

    When man who burns the books of wisdom,
    the result is death.
    Understanding open doors of evolution,
    blinded truth cannot be found.
    The ultimate measures of a man,
    is how he keeps Gods command,
    freeing self from the prison, the conduct of life.
    Justice indispensable, man sets his own faith.

    Sonnets of voice refuse to be dismissed.
    No coward soul shall be herd.
    Buried love, the burning of humanities,
    by mans right hands.​

    The words of the ancestors shall always be heard, no matter how many years, no matter how many tears. Speak on poet.
