Another second ticks past
Another moment that won’t last
Time again yields to nothing new
Leaves behind victories and youth

Those who thought one life could change
Our world from scandal and pain
Belief that hope and desire
Would cast water upon the fire

Yet failures and callused minds
Bind with broken promises find
Brilliant victories shout
Vanquished limits and doubts

Without giving merit to those
Whose lives already arose
From the cemeteries
Of soiled and doubtful policies
