I am often knocked down by the gazes of the haters,
back biters, the bullies, the witty, and the other fool phonies.
Then when life got better for me. I’ve tasted glory
They all know my story
I am now a hot-shot thinking they should all bow down before me.
But then it struck me like bolt of lightning...it hit me so hard,
- Reality -
I was in pain, in agony. It ain't easy, still, I was lucky.
Then my mother told me, baby
No cloud forms into a storm
without permission of the heavens
No plates will shake that awake
those deadly earthquakes
No waves will roar and hush…………
without Him knowing so
And no sun will shine
revealing that colorful rainbow.
Right then and there
those thunder bolts that kept screaming in my ear
I can see it clear, slowly disappear.
I was blinded by the sight of me in the mirror.
Deceiving into believing that it was all mine,
but it wasn’t
In fact, it never was
I was simply receiving and so because
it was just given, count it as a blessing.
Then my mind starts to open,
I think it’s time to pick up the sings and all the warnings.
I am a cup and empty, needed to be filled
by the one who gave up
His life for me and drank that chalice.
Then all I knew is:
The words that I preach and the voice that you hear
comes from a whole other dimension
in which no religion could ever feed
no holier than thou could ever see
that kind of revelation which is amazing!
It is a gift
that you must treasure.
Life? It ain't forver,
So you better not think you’re more clever
than the other good souls who gather,
Roaming about the planet,
Streets! making their playground.
- You are here, so listen to that sound. -
Then you see a boy with a broken smile
You think for a while...
Light up a candle
to a heart who’s not able to handle
the adversities that have scarred them, that have once scarred you.
You hear him cursing! reality, blaming the hate and economy
which results to poverty, with all these hypocrisies
added by the social inequality
and the hostile society.
So what? He says.
Then you decide what to do next.
For the light that is in you is undying
but it’s for you to decide
if you are going
to pass it on to someone who is tryin’,
struggling in life and surviving.
