BURNING EMBERS

Written by: Yesha Shah

 
Whenever you'd aim, make sure its high For there is a world beyond the blue sky Let those shining eyes never lose the sight Fuel the desires, fan the flames with all might To keep those embers burning bright. The sands of time will ruthlessly blow Swim against the current, dare the flow No matter if the waters are deep or shallow Warm the surging hopes, better blazed than mellow To keep those embers burning bright. Each time the flickers wane and dreams ashen Hone your skills up in a different new fashion Glide forward taking everything in the stride Silently working away with a fiery pride To keep those embers burning bright. Dousing the fires, threaten thunderous showers Guard your spirit with fierce lionic powers Rising from the ashes like a phoenic, bounce back With "the will to win" all fears simply lack To keep those embers burning bright. One is just so impossible to beat Who never gives up nor accepts defeat Pure effort, not a span of years nor a gap of miles Sheer desire, not vain regrets nor sighs futile To keep those embers burning bright.
