For How Long

Also Read

For how long
Must I sit at the river bank
Waiting for the joy the morrow brings?

For how long
Must I walk around a naked shore
Praying to stumble upon some precious stones?

Is there magic in the wind
That snuggles my brow?
Will it heal my aching heart?

Is there beauty in the blue sky
Stretching endlessly above my head?

Is there still confidence in humanity?
Is there still trust in the world
Since the fall of Adam and the lost of Eden?
Will there ever come a time
When peace will return to this earth?
