My lowest ebb

                                               MY LOWEST EBB

                                                 At my lowest ebb
                                           Trapped within life’s web
                             The snares of life caught me off guard
                             And I am let to believe there is a god
                       The same god who is supposed to be my guard
                 My hands are burnt from the fire balls life throws at me
                                  Void and empty like a vacuum
                A black star within the constellations unreflective to sun rays
            It’s all pitch black but my heart burns with emotions that enables 
                    Me to dance to life’s rhythm and sing hymns of hope
                                       And broaden my life scope
                 I am a man therefore I am supposed to cope not elope
                            I have been taken for a joke like a coke addict
                              Though for I know it’s a superficial verdict
                      Betrayed from my trusted precinct by plastic smiles
                             While I was at it, I will get past it
                      Their grin, green with envy as it overshadows my being
            Life has walked on me like a door mat, but my rage remains dormant
                    Silent as the night, like a medieval knight I will conquer              
                                                      This life
                                            For I can see the light
                                    I am bound by the virtue of right
