Virgin dawn to be seen

Though they have cut short your blooming youth

Interned you in the womb of chinars

The blazing chinars will engulf them

And leave not a rack behind!

In the insane lustful race to Conquer the ultimate citadel of power,

They will stumble on hornet’s nest.

Unleashing swarms

Who will drag them to the pit where all arrogance of power lies buried.
Power’s hands are ripped apart by the scissors of time

The ignorant gloss it over by idols and isms

The lunatics delude themselves with ever lasting power

But we shall see the Virgin dawn you dreamt of

Cleansed of all dross and dirt,

Not as delusion but as promised by Eternity.
