I am burdened and hurting
Nothing can sooth my fears and wipe away my tears
Shelter me from this pain
Allow me to heal in your arms
Never let anything touch me again
I am breaking away and I am in pieces on the floor around you
Take away the pain and torture
You are all that I have
Nation against nation a war has begun, people prepare with their bullets and guns.
Soldiers are ready at the foot of the brawl, women weep as their children fall.
Many are mane and many die many scream and many cry all live in hope for the war to end
please not let a war come again.
With my rhyme, you fall in love
Enchanted by my words, you’ve found that your fantasies come to life
I can see my power over you; you take my hand in its silken glove
I make you travel with me through all your pain and strife
You need me, I need you, and together we are stuck like glue
Forever, eternal, we will pull through
When all your hope has faded, I am there for you
When all your dreams are shattered, I will repair them too
When all seems lost, I am your seeker
I am there so you can’t fall deeper
I am your life
The citadels of time come and go like the waves of the sea
Ever enfolding, ever releasing, goodness and badness at ease
Locked in a time warp of uncertainty, we control things, not.
Fate encircles and declines whether we like it or not.
Time is of the essence, which one we won’t know
But time is forever lasting, it will never go
Dream of the good things and of the bad
Hope that you’ll get your wish and hope to never be sad
Graceful is its entrance within your waking life, bringing you happiness or strife
Waste not the time you have, keep it for all it’s worth
Moping around in misery will only make things worse.
