I am a path seeking an unattainable haven
A refugee looking for a glimpse of peace,
On an island plagued with death
I am the first ray of dawn
That soldiers see after the end of every war
I am a wanderer of a lost craven,
Aching for a sight of shore
But the only thing I see are waves of pain
Drowning, mixing with the aimless waters of rain
The high winds are wrestling with the tides
The islands are bleeding and the sky is aching to cry
Everything is in chaos
Where should I go
I hear the thunders
I’ve lost my way home
Where is my direction
I don’t know this sea,
I can’t go on
Just come and save me
If you know I see dreams higher
than the sapphire alluring sky,
then why do you dig my grave
in your atrocious mind.
Stop tying me to these wounds
I’ll pull through all this pain.
Your hatred only gives me strength
to break free from these chains.
My flight has yet not left,
I’m dwelling my own demons,
the ones you planted in my desire
to keep me from my freedom
You’ve always pressed me down;
your laughs still echo in my ear.
They haunt me day and night
but remind me why I am still here
All your taunts trapped me
behind thick rusty bars of terror,
each day I would close my windows
wishing you could become better.
But I failed to realize that in me,
there’s a beauty you don’t see.
I’m elevating into victory,
where your harsh words won’t destroy me.
But now I’ve broken all those barriers,
the ones shackled in your disgust.
It was you who led me to this victory,
So, thank you for your insults.
I am not guilty
Listen to my pleads
My words are my witness
Won’t you trust me please?
I know my case isn’t strong
And I have no proof
If I could rip my heart open
I would do it
Just to show you the truth
Eyes can be deceiving
And words can tell lies
You’re listening to their words
Yet you don’t hear my cries
Maybe you’ll realize
When the time has gone
That I wasn’t guilty
I was just trapped
When I hadn’t done anything wrong
This prison doesn’t mock me
It’s the tearing thought inside
You were supposed to trust me
When no one else was by my side.
These walls I’m trapped in
don’t bother me at all
But it hurts knowing
That the person
who was supposed to help me rise
Was the first to make me fall.
Come to the side
You look like a threat
Let me decide
That’s not your line
Come stand here, darling
So, I could pin you to a crime
You’re too colored
Maybe if you were a little more light
I would let you pass
So you could take this flight
But your name is odd
so is the color on your skin
we can’t let you leave
and neither can we let you in
As I use code names
Out of all those people, you’re our new prey
let me take you to those empty chambers
and strip you of your pride
let me touch you all over
as you clench your teeth and close your eyes
let me break your ego
because your clothes are odd
and you can’t pronounce your ‘T’s and your ‘R’s
Hey, no hard feelings
We’re just doing our job
Thank you for your cooperation
And sorry for the scars
Maybe next time
Where ever the hell you are.
