The Promises of Life !
In a way we ask for failure,
we don't believe in the power
of our will to change the way,
and we let despondancy breathe,
where all life can be sucked
out of the place of hope.
Too many times we will let,
pressure to conform, to be liked,
fill our reasons, our hearts
and no room is left for me.
Abandoned are our dreams then,
where we'll not go to fight on,
for we'll let the desire be no
more our all encompassing friend.
Be not fooled in the silences
that change will find you waiting,
for unless you steady your hands,
it will be impossible to hold.
Clear cut like muddy waters,
this life has given us power,
in all of our beliefs we sing
for a day when light would come.
Deep indeed have run the lies,
we told to keep us ever down,
fond of letting life fly by swiftly,
I bet we feel ourselves betrayed,
even though it was our choice,
a fear of lying in the bed we made.
Did we not yet realise the truth,
we made resolves we could not keep,
so why are we surprised at all
when it's bitter tears we weep ?
Life did not fail us in the night,
nor did it let us down again,
the promises are, what we've made,
so send them out again..!!
