  1. ULURU SONG

    Warriors don’t need
    Any kind of democracy
    When the spirit gives the light
    To their dance

    Crossing time
    In rainbow snake arms
    They’re illuminating the night
    In caresses of sparkles

    Today it’s time to dream
    As it is since the first instant
    Today it’s time to dream
    As if nothing has born yet

  2. “as if nothing was born yet” maybe
