  1.  The stars are free


    You may have all the cake

    but I have candles too

    You may own all the land

    but the stars are free

    You may own the dreams

    but hope is for all

    You may claim all the music

    but laughter is magical

    You may have the big houses

    but the sky shelters all

    You may be driving in your car

    but the wind runs free

    You may count your wealth

    but friends are priceless

    You may be the élite

    but we are all unique


  2. Still the desire


    Lock yourself in towers of possessions

    still the want to be free will arise.

    Stand in vari-coloured lights

    still the longing to sit in the dark will beckon

    Stuff yourself with delicacies

    still the desire to be empty will come.

    Drown yourself in untold glasses

    still the need to thirst will summon.

    Cover yourself in limitless riches

    still the longing to be naked will call.

    Loose yourself in a cacophony of sound

    still the yearning for silence will entice.

    Drench yourself in a plethora of scents

    still a breeze from the mountains will invite

    and when it does,


    answer true.
