There’s nothing to lose
When you start with nil
And if dreams aren’t tough
Then what’s the point of it?
I have lost the thought of losing,
For all the things I have planned to win.
Giving up or giving in holds no sense.
It’s just undying faith in me and my perseverance.
A burning passion consumes
The fuel is my entire life
Moments of failure don’t define
Truth shall come when it is my time
All the darkness of the doubt
Shall be relinquished when my fire uprises
Having faith in myself because
Dark clouds or unsurmountable mountains
The sun always rises.
The times are trying
And I am aware of the pain
I know the suffering I feel
When hardly anyone knows your name
But I have hard work and a ton of dedication
Surpassing all for my gain
I will fall but never falter
I will always rise again
You can’t beat me. You can’t defeat me
I am a player, and this is my game.
Rises from the Ashes
The fire is strong
And the road ahead
Is filled with rasp songs
That strikes fear inside my mind
The trail is treacherous. The road is long
But I must go on
There’s a long way to go
If death is what lies ahead, I shall take it
For it is better than not moving at all
And while the fire burns
With uncertainty’s lashes
Shall the phoenix be afraid of fire?
When it knows it will rise from the ashes.
You and Your Mind
The calmed is soothing
But it is deluding
Don’t try and hide
The chaos inside
That chaos will change you
It will derange you
But it will take you someplace ahead
So face the mess
That your mind has made
Sort it with strength
Go till the end
If anything that holds you back
You know it’s only you, no pretense
The toughest life is someone who lies
The toughest fight is with you inside
Don’t let it run you
You are the one to run your mind.
The pain hardship brings
May last days may last years
It isn’t pain’s persistency, it’s your complacency
It isn’t pain’s determination, it’s your fears
Replace your tears
With your sweat
This isn’t a punishment
It is a test
And it is the time for you to shine
To go beyond
And make it your time.
Like a Star
There’s no miracle
Look for no miracle
It is the hard work that changes
Coming through all the challenges
It is where your story is written
It is perseverance to take you all the way
So pull up your socks
And prepare for a war
It is easy to give in to the darkness
But takes an effort to shine like a star.
Do or Die
When fear takes hold of you
You know what to do
It is not running away, no hiding
You look in the eyes of fear and show the real you
You can be where you decide
Reach the sky’s infinite height
Or be lost in a failure’s plight.
If it is your desperate desire
Then there will be no place for excuse
If it is all you want to have
Then it is something you cannot lose
It takes over your mind, it is all you think
Nothing else, nothing more
So fight with all your strength, give it all you have, no matter how tough it gets,
If it is worth dreaming for
It is worth fighting for
It is worth striving for
You’re a piece of iron
Stay dormant and then you’ll find
You’re all covered with rust
Brittle, useless and cracked
With the slightest touch
You’re a piece of iron
Covered in mud and dirt
The heat will make you turn
Into something of your true worth
And the hammering will bestow pain
But the pain will let you take over the world.
Nothing worth achieving
Is achieved easily
What’s achieved easily
Has no worth.
The goal has no value
It’s desirable, it is sought
Because it needs hard work
So close your eyes
And pull down the blinds
To everything that is not worth
Give it all to what is all to you
Why must you dig holes to find coal
While you can swim the ocean
For your pearl.
Not a ship
You’re not on a ship
That is crossing a sea
But you are in a sea
And that’s a treacherous sea
Filled with sharks
And other atrocities
Out there for blood
And the shore cannot be seen.
But keep in mind
That you are not in a ship
But you are in the middle of this
You are not in a ship, I repeat
But don’t worry and keep swimming
Because you are the ship
Made of steel and unbreakable dreams
Dreams are bricks
There is a lot that must be done
If it is your dream is concerned
And it is our dreams that put light on the future.
And decide what is to come.
Dreams are what gives us eyes
To see through our misery and pain
If not dreams, then are we even alive?
Eat, sleep, and repeat, again and again?
Dreams are the bricks
Our hopes are built with
What makes these bricks?
Our perseverance, undying faith
In overcoming adversities
In trusting our skills
In the utter confidence on our will
So stay strong and keep walking on
You have everything you need
The night always ends, no matter how long
Don’t be afraid of the dark, keep laying bricks.
It burns in you
The desire to prove
It burns in you
The desire to do
Don’t burn with it
Let it go out
Create your story for the future
With what you do now
There is a hardship for every smile
But the difficulty mustn’t be hard
If your heart indeed complies
And the passion shall roar and rage
With every iota of strength
You will create history
With your present
So don’t fall weak, there’s so much to seek
There might be endless pains ahead
But your courage and perseverance know no end.
