Rise Above

Rise Above

Years have since come and gone
When I childishly looked at the world –
Then, age and realism dawned
Causing my foolish heart to unfurl.

A thirst to want to love and be loved,
Was seemingly quenched
And old ideas were proved wrong
Lies poured and left me drenched.

It would seem my logical mind
Has taken over and dominates
The desire to seek and find
New beliefs about my fate.

Fear of feeling failure’s harsh sting,
And being in a crowd yet alone –
Should I keep quiet or loudly sing?
Say what I feel or merely groan?

Perhaps, one day I’ll decide my fate –
Or is it simply all in vain?
Our destinies are already written on slates…
Nothing we can do to escape the pain.

All these questions with no real answers –
Will cause man and woman to search –
To find out exactly how many chances
We have to either emerge or submerge…

Surrender to a predetermined fate…
Or take control and ignore the stings
Screaming aloud that I won’t wait ?
Failure or success – I’ll take what life brings.
