In Between

I’m in between
The darkness and light…how can I make progress?
I’m in distress
The happiness…will never last – will never lead to
Everlasting success... 
I’ll never reach
Soaring success…

I’m in between
Land and water 
But, the grass on the other side is green
And I’ll remain
Unseen… 
Unseen for life 
Gobbling up repulsive strife  
Invisible like the spirits…  
Roaming the earth and haunting people 
To the maximum 

I’m in between
Merriness and desolation…how can I make progress?
I’m entwined in my mess 
The jubilance…will have its end– will never lead to
Sky-high success…
I’ll never attain 
Vivacious victory 

I’m feeling numb – 
I’m in between doubt and hope…
Not sure what shoulder I should lean on…
Not sure what path to take…my life’s at stake
And all I could do at this moment is mope
Trapped in a bewildered state…
Unfasten me out of this seatbelt 
Before I melt away…before I subside 
Away from your dynamic light 

My faith towards Him converts to fright… 
Don’t confiscate me from my homeland
Why do I have to depart tonight? I don’t understand…
 
I’m in between
Giving up and enduring…how can I seek blissfulness?
I’m under pressure…I’m compacted by tons of stress 
The exultation…will soon wither away–
 Goodbye to success... 
Goodbye to my heart’s desire!
Forget about my progress 
What does success require of me? 

(just so that you know: Am I Close To Success is the 2nd part of this)
