i hear the danger
i see the flames
black clouds from the grounds
writing names to blame

machines roared
buildings destroyed
a place in distress
voices in paranoid

if i am dreaming
please wake me up
let me see my own shadow
taking care of myself

i heeded my screams
my shouts of fear
the hope of survival
was drowning in tears

a war borne in despair
fearful of people near by
a man sitting on his chair
alone, lonely, living in lies

Life ( #1 )

life, as i can remember it then
a typical one in a family of ten
to each his own way of trekking the journey
life's clean living or the one that's dirty

aspired to be a winner but chances failed
still life went on though how far i've sailed
wanted to be better but settled for worse
it was hard to take i took it as a curse

life's quest for brighter stars did not end
patience and will in mind i ran the ugly bends
searching for gold under the thick haystacks
i persevered a lot now i hold high victory's flag

as my life nears the finish line of the race
i'll leave some words of wisdom on my resting place
in life people are thinking about survival
outdo yourself, think not about the others as your rivals...
