Just because you broke my wings,
Just because you threw thorns in my path,
Just because you cut my throat with your ego,
Just because you gave your best to put me down,
Does it mean you accomplished your mission?
Why are you searching for me in the dark cellar?
Why will I even go to the lonely moor and cry?
Why will you find me in the stillness of the air?
Why will you find my eyes shut under the blanket of the dark winter night?
Do you think you can merrily look for me weeping under the shadows of your strong paws?
Are you shocked for not finding me among the torn pieces of hope?
Are you tired of searching for me in the haunted house of your hostile humanity?
Is it your madness to look for me between the waves of dolour?
Why will I even give you a chance to find me rafting in the river of recession?
Ok let me help you find me.
Trace me in the colours of free flying butterfly
Look up to me in the glory of the rising sun
Find me in the ferocious flight of high rising eagle
Look for me in the light of rejoicing full moon
Find me in the strength of a soldier's muscle
Spot me in the sweetness of the hard-earned bread
Find me in the sweat of an honestly tired face.
Locate me in the glister of the creative mind
Catch me in the confidence and valor of an educator
Feel my presence in the words of an inspiring leader
Fetch me in the smiles of a successful student
See me in the pride of a proud parent.
Instill fear in me, I will come up with a smile
Pierce needles into me, You will see fire in the mirror of my blood.
Put me down to the core, I will rise to the sky with a roar.
