Crushing powers that be

Reena Saxena

How many systems failed blooming spring?
When sting of darkness clipped a wing
Did they ask her where she wanted to be?
Powers conspired against powers that be

When sting of darkness clipped a wing
Was it fear or evil laughing in glee?
Powers conspired against powers that be
Gardens withered away, not breathing free

Was it fear or evil laughing in glee?
Don’t let freshness turn permanent
Gardens wither away, not breathing free
so they don’t become eminent

Don’t let freshness turn permanent
How many systems failed blooming spring?
so they don’t become eminent
Did they ask her where she wanted to be?
