If this is all what life was,
I would have it this way.
I’ve lived too long full of pain,
To exert myself until I explode and ricochet,
Every punch I had to take and pray,
That I didn’t die by the clutches of my own hands ,
After leaving it all on the page.
Sweat and tears family and friends undermined,
Until I stood up for mine and took control of my fate,
And stayed remote from the Cave,
Where no one comes back quite the same,
Bones broke from the change.
Paid a price,
Died in a grave.
So that I fly like a Phoenix,
Reborn from the ashes I’ve made in the first place.
All the smoke from every burnt bridge and blunt I had to roll when the truth made my soul ache.
I rolled along,
For more than a quarter at the cost of what I used to be while I was locked in a cage,
By demons now incinerated by a spark inside of my chest,
Lit by so many treasures I am being blessed with till this very day…
