Smile

Smile
And the world shall laugh at your face
Cry
And the world shall laugh at your face
Run
And the world might still be laughing at your face

How synthetic this emotions seem
When a girl cries or smiles
Or runs with joy or fear
Here and There
And everywhere
When Death is so near

Let alone this world feel ashamed
Of her chastity might proclaim
And if she is not to be true
Honor killing will do

To save our names and bonds
And the status we built upon
The walls so high
To not let her fly
And chain her down
With red bangles

Fly my friend
And let the world know
You are free
Free to be
Me

A Promise

Father of the son
Mother of the child
Child of the earth
Promise
Promise me today
That you shall save this
Humanity
And not let it die
Die with guns and blood
And rain acid all over my breast
Promise you wont let
Me die
Die of disease or distress
And cherish the fruit I grow
From my womb
For your benefit
And not just feel ashamed
To say no
No to all who sell my womb
Sell your mother away ?
Go my child
Save the earth
Save humanity
From today
Promise.
