We live with dreams craving to become reality
Watered with the sweetness of success
Adored like the Queen of the coast where splendor lies at the feet

The tenor of our inner desire seems unquenchable with each passing tide
It searches deep within for its uniqueness
When life exhibit a meager effect

Day by day the caption remains the same
Today, 'tis a fight against adversaries
Tomorrow, the quest to sustain the trend
Which leaves a massive trite in the highs and lows

We shatter nature's design to fan the flames our desire
After 12,000 years, the Holocene is gone
We now contend the Anthropocene
With little efforts at the central supposition
Of our omnifarious 21st century way of life

Our love will buy us no good when its conditional
Our juxtaposition might take us far to the end of the dark
Why wait to see when the world gets better
when you can better it with your better side?

We can spice up the world with our smiles
Not on our faces but on the ones we'll meet
Why not make a better world with your smiles
And taste how much spice you have put in?
