Wounded Asia

Wounded Asia

This ruined world is so wide
It covers all the innocence,
It wraps all the spiritual essence,
It is a beautiful devastating presence.

This reminder of broken beauty
It is a book of different pages,
It has stories of tyrant cages,
It has buildings of ancient ages.

This dress of regency begging
It has skin so soft and chaotic,
It has no friends so it’s rustic,
It has the whole of Asia and it’s hurting…
