An Alternative



To turn deserts into splendid cities
Turn stones into majestic temples.

To believe in the one who breathes sweet music into a bamboo flute
The one who challenges every God with his matchless might.

Setting your heart and soul only for one person and falling in love
To burn and wither in flames of lust.

Marvel at the splendor of human skill shaped out of stones, bricks, metals and wood
Preserve the everlasting rising pyramids founded on the human blood.

Reap huge harvests as the masters of Commerce
Learn to survive and prosper without fortifications, depending on deadly arsenals.

To live within the Fortress Walls outside the cities and towns
To flourish in peace and glory, without the two words fear and violence.

Feel the magic of peaceful moonlit night with warm embrace of Summer breeze
Spoil the future worrying about a buried past.

To seek freedom: a dirty word built on the tragedy of obedience and comedy of compliance
Redeem it; incubated in guilt and sin.

Love or lust.
Freedom or guilt.
Nothing really matters.
What matters are the choices we make and the alternatives we create.
Believe in the power of divine,
Grateful for our existence and accomplishments
Beyond the grasp of puffy puppets wallowing in self-love.
