In the deep
Where everything is dark and quiet
When men birth tales
Tales of great and murmured longings
In the forests of heart
Many a need
And ever exceedingly wants
Needs of family
And of love and of life
Just these satisfied needs and life would be eased
And burdens will be lifted
Ohh sheered deceitful hopes Amidst unfazed wishes
We never live to know and accept
Agreeing to it to be fate
What happened to faith?
Like the Inspired word recorded
With your eyes you shall see Canaan
But never your footsteps be buried in its sands
Aspirations against ‘fucked’ reality
Hope against weak thought conceptions
Life seemingly presenting the choice of mediocrity
Against wishes and esteems
Who do we run to?
And what do we run for?
Now before me are choices
The choice many make
Perhaps in the wake
Against desires and wishes
A battle rarely won
But against all odds I choose to live Living for hopes and not popes
Against crushed souls and critics
Even pessimists and the tenacious-ridden offs!
On the inside is a blazing glow
Steering us to grow
Making the difference
And in it is a buried confidence
Ohh now I know;
So much to live for!
