I walk the way

Written by: rinki nandy


A snail's pace and diminished grace,
seeking escape from their embrace,
down with lost respect,
your foray,
keep me at bay,
erase dismay, 
before I turn gray,
I hope for a better day,
I walk the way

You say I may have lost it finally,
say I am disturbed unusually,
does it scare you to see,
your warnings and ideas I disagree,
say I need to let free,
is it my nature to stand like a tree?
When You cut my branches and flee,
your ignorance and fray,
your cocaine my dismay,
coat me all you may,
before I turn gray,
I hope for a better day,
I walk the way

Upsets you that I don't follow,
take your beating and feel hollow,
why don't i belong?
To your valleys of poison and tag along,
can't miss my bus half-long,
haven't I waited too long?
Your virtues and display,
of your vices go astray,
I no more pay,
to your lust for foray,
your direction a cliche`,
mock me all you may,
before I turn gray,
I hope for a better day,
I walk the way
                   
Do you cry,
when I defy?
Your limitations and prey,
on your brilliance you say,
cloud me all you may,
like a star I shine from far away,
blind me with your way,
like a tornado I blow you away,
ignore me you say?,
like the tides I wash you away,
ice me all you may,
like a volcano I will melt your bones away,
boot me all you may,
before I turn gray,
I hope for a better day,
I walk the way
