Song of Woe

God, this pain, it won't go away.

God, is this pain here to stay?

God, let me know what causes this pain,

So I can make it not come again.

God, I have been your obedient subject,

Total subservience is not an object,

God, I avoid doing what you dislike,

Hills of sin I do not hike.

God, I try to help the unfortunate,

What is theirs I do not take.

God, this Earth, your gift, I care,

My generation do not see it bare.

God I give to charity,

For sufferings I can't bear to see.

God I have been a good servant,

But this I feel is hell not heaven.


So you think you have done no wrong,

Then why do you think you are singing this song?

If you think good is all you offer

Then why is it pain that you suffer?

Yes, it's true you have done no wrong

But wrong, you allow to perpetuate for so long.

Your sin is not the sin that you commit,

Your sin is to sinful people you submit.

So...what you are saying....those who are born sinners...even they pray 5 times for forgiveness per day...God will not forgive them......correct....correct ......correct??
And can we interpret....God left us for a while...like 25 years....returned and found those sinners are getting worst and worst....so God needs to be pom pom pom these bastards??

Pak Zawi,

Monty,
What I really meant is it's no point thinking we have done no wrong if we keep voting people who do a lot of wrong in. Our conscience know what we have done.

beautifully written, cikgu. i'm simply impressed how you could come up with such good poem. writing lyrics should be peanuts i suppose?

Kerp,
I tried writing for my son's solo album and found it tedious. There was no conviction at all. I guess there must be a reason to write, otherwise, the words and ideas won't flow. I am not a good writer really. I just like to fool around that's all.

kbguy,
Thanx for visiting. I didn't know that some of my posts got posted into your inbox. Definitely not my work. Probably some of your naughty friends. Thanx again for dropping by.

Kerp (Ph.D) said...

eh, your son has gone solo? what happened to urban exchange? aisehh...all the best anyway.

Kerp,
The group, Urban Method is still there but mati segan hidup tak mahu. They have no manager. The last one like all managers, conned them big time.

I know what you are trying to say in the poem. I just want to pull a fast one on you.....just for my own personal pleasure and laugh.
And...poor chap....your son's band manger is a crook?
You should spend some time to manage the band.....you are so smart and capable. No need to be there....listening or checking the sound systems...manage with assistances...who may love to do the job..paid by the hour.....not on monthly salaries.

I did once to Liz Wong too.....hahahaha

Monty,
Don't worry, I never ditch my friends. I am an ordinary person, not a VIP so I treat every friend the same. Anyway, we are on the same side.
