Songs of fire,
Heart’s sweet desire
Burning a hole in the desiccated clouds,
Rain is nowhere to be found.
And closed doors
But today, the light shines over me
For I talked with the rain
Convinced her to pour down, rain over me
Get over with it, all in on go
And she responded, that is not how it works
For it is a bitter-sweet symphony
And She has been too kind to me––can’t be repayed.
When the earth shouts her lungs out,
Suffering from pain
I stand there, hoping that the light
Continues to shine over me
Better sense prevails and I get through it
For it is the truth
One should be familiar with it
Continue down the path, you will not get lost
Be humble, calm and poised
For this is life’s joy.
