Yeah, Right

The eminent linguistic philosopher J. L.

Cry

This is my cry, this is my prayer,

I have lost my sight of what’s true and real.

I seek refuge in this cruel world, with no ray and light.

Attracted to illusions, like a honey by bees in flight.

My ambitions were fake, my dreams were false.

I ’ m writing this to remember my true self, to hear the cry of soul.

For tomorrow is a new day, and I know

I will be again forever lost and forever dead to my spiritual goal
