Man defied the gods

In hurry he left

For his new found land

As the trees looked at him

He rejoiced

It was the new found freedom

Perhaps it shocks

But that was the greatest mistake

When I awake I see it in me

The same disease

The deception constantly preying on me in my mind

How can I say it to myself?

I also ran away from the river and the trees

Hoping to live by freedom

Until it turned into free-doom

Soon death came from behind

Taking my father and then my mother

As I glanced at the corpse lying by the dark forest

I understood

I’d rather stay by the river and the trees

To provide fruits and leaves

Branches so that the gods might sing their hymns

Eventually this comes at a price

I hadn’t finished telling her this when she went

I hope she sees

Pain is the lot

The burden to carry for having defied the gods
