Life Games

DSCN0598 - CopyMiles and miles away
Somewhere on earth,
Under a burning sun,
Once river beds,
Now dust and sand,
Day by day
A boy, a girl
Thousands of them
Play imaginary games…

“These shells will be our boats,
Any old sticks our swords…
As far as you can see…
Our adventures seven seas…
I’ll be a pirate,
you’ll be a queen
we’ll build our homes…
A brand new world”

“Let’s runaway…
To a new land,
Survival mode…
Of children free and wild…
These shells will be our boats,
Any old sticks our swords…
As far as you can see…
Our adventures seven seas…
I’ll be a pirate,
you’ll be a queen”.

Below an urban sky
Of nature caged,
concrete walls…
In scheduled lives
Of man-made flows…

Miles and miles away
Somewhere on earth,
Under a burning sun,
Once river beds…
Now dust and sand…
Night by night,
Day by day
A boy, a girl
Thousands of them
Play their games…

Build their homes…
Brand new worlds…
