Burning Bright

When Heaven took your light from me,
The whole world went dark.
I do not know where to turn,
I need your guidance.

Some say it is His will
This world is only black and white.
In which hell will I stay?
I cannot live as a toy.

I know only pain in my heart,
This is His skill.
You can see fury in me,
Burning bright in my eyes!

I will not bend,
I obey my own will.
Your life was not His to take
There is sorrow always around me.

When Heaven threw down it's fire,
I fought with only tears.
What I knew is now gone,
This world has blended to grey.
