Theme: Agony

Hearts of Stone

I went past the street,
Went round the corners,
Vendors shouting, beggars begging,
Handicapped calling;
But no one caring.
Hearts of Stone
Yes, hearts of stone I saw, I felt
Will these ever melt?

Does the cry have no effect,
On the intelligentsia's verdict?
Where is the pity lost?
Where are all the ethics lost?
All values simple Going, Going'Gone.

None cares,
All the same daily affairs.
Hearts of stone
With no melodious tone.
So rude, so curt,
Every mind filled with dirt.

Will good feelings ever creep in?
Will goodness ever win?
Or will these eyes see more sin?
Hearts of stone,
With a Hope they soften soon.
