Once Upon A Tearful September
Once Upon A Tearful September || Viano Dee

The perfect blue sky turned grey,
the ashes barely had traces
of remains.
It was a tearful September.
Souls have walked down memory lane.
They haven’t come back—
They are never coming back,
They left in September.

Written and Performed by Viano Dee
Instrumental: Emotional Love Theme by Biz Baz Studio

Where We Go From Here: An Original Song
Where do we go from here|| Viano Dee

Intro:

Oh oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh oh…hey

Stanza:

Everyday we wake up to
hear the news that sounds untrue
Fear and tension fills the air
tell me where we go from here
People killing, people dying
Souls are lost and people cry,
People cry…
Tell me what is wrong with us,
how did we get from good to worse?

Chorus:
Where do we go from here?
Where do we go from here?
Where do we go from here?

Where do we go from here?
Where do we go from here?
Where do we go from here?

Where do we go from here?
From here…

Rap:

I feel the pain of the struggling suffering
Every teardrop has its weight and its tumbling down
How did we get to this stage it’s just mind boggling
I wish I could take all the pain away

You see we’re divided by race and it’s not okay
Constantly fighting each other and that’s not the way
Love has been torn into shreds it can barely stay
How did we turn out this way —
where do we go from here?

Chorus:
Where do we go from here?
Where do we go from here?
(Where do we go)
Where do we go from here?
(Where do we go oh) (tell me where do we go oh)

Where do we go from here?
(Too much hate, too much suffering)
Where do we go from here?
(Too much pain and so much sorrow)
Where do we go from here?
(How did we get to this stage anyway, anyway)

Where do we go from here?
Too much hate, too much suffering
Too much pain and so much sorrow
How did we get to this stage anyway, anyway?

Outro.

About Once Upon A September

Once Upon A September consists of a poem titled “Once Upon A Tearful September” and a song titled “Where Do We Go From Here?”

The title was inspired by the 9/11 attack which happened in the US in 2001– exactly 18 years ago. Two days prior to 9/11, a deadly attack occurred in one of the most peaceful states in Nigeria, leaving several people dead. Fast forward 18 years later, a xenophobic attack in South Africa in the same month took away so many innocent lives.

While the main title serves as an umbrella, the title of the poem emphasizes on the fact that September was indeed a tearful one. This is not to say that people don’t die in other months, but September was chosen because of disasters associated with it.

The song, on the other hand, is my first original studio work which addresses the things that have gone wrong with humanity. It’s about how mankind is its own problem– division, hatred, and war have torn us apart. “Where Do We Go From Here?” is often asked– it’s like with all of these, what next? Are we going to continue to devour ourselves or make a change? If change is what we seek, it must start with us first.

P.S: I’m open to positive criticism, please share your thoughts.

PIN IT.
