THE FIRE IN THE WORD

I could have waited But I was in patient. Of course it’s no good Nothing else remains than to pay Just for me to stay. I’ve awakened the devil in me And alongside the angel in me Now these lions roar for revenge Cuz I’ve tasted and felt its breath. I took decisions Hard decisions Just to get this unquenchable fire Quenched this once of its desire 24 weeks and days All gone and passed away Yet no hope Not even a single show No man to assure me I’m loved Not a mere shoulder to learn on. Surprising as it seems When the lights get dim Out of many no one to choose But you Is it late? Should I wait? Or go ahead and damn the consequences? Or do I hold on to fate and decency? Wait a minute! Do I really mean it? Thought I made up mind on something? Can I surely give everything? Why then do I go back on my words? Myself I blame not Do not blame me for us Blame nature, the World and love That has made me love you so Deeply that I can’t let go. I know you were pretending But it’s time to amend things. Of course you still care. All I need do is dare. I wish you could still keep the fire burning Even if heaven starts descending But then you are just filled with fear Fear of the unknown you bear. You prayed it wouldn’t show Lest everything blows You which you could just shut All those quiet but loud gestures of yours. Well, sorry it’s too late I know whom my place takes I know who was before me And after me I know who is my in my interest bears my treasure And I know who in hate seeks it to devour. All whom you have pleasure given Shall never again try to resist But not withstanding all these I’ll still care and seek peace.
