[tab id=1]Footprints declared hope
in pain, plunged themselves
hence this generation sips suicide
All guidelines like paint against walls
All knowledge like waterfall down throats
All left rotten and forgotten
All memory shortened
History matters no more
for they say like stale bread
into rubbish bin it must be dipped
The unborn weep in wombs of the future
As the sad song continues to harm posterity
