Oasis


Oasis

(an immortalization of a beautiful connection)

What if I told you
Great things are awaiting
Beyond the hardships
There’s a future you’re shaping

But what if I didn’t
What if I reminded you
Things were once fucked-up
But you pushed through

I’ve seen the magic
All that you hold, a beauty inside
My moonchild you’re a raging wave
Of love and strength, high-tide

Remember our lesser selves
The ones we left behind
Take a look at yourself
At your majestic new mind

Marvel at the universe
Your loyal guardian angel
Waiting for you to jump
And leap into the danger

Because there’s no gravity here
Nothing to hold you down
With every leap, you’ll soar higher
And forget all the letdowns

You’re almost there
Soon enough you’ll reach it
The oasis you’ve been searching for
I swear it’ll be worth every bit

The Way to Be Free


The Way to Be Free

I walk through the ashes and blood, wondering

Is there a beating heart amongst this debris?
A breathing lung or a moving finger
Instead of lost souls, wandering, searching…

I look up at the sky drying the tears I’m shedding

Is this what you call justice, a decree
Of cruelty and bitterness
Towards children crawled up on the ground, hiding…

I listen to the sound of hatred, raging

Is this how it has to be?
These souls nothing but a number
To the coward fate-handlers, watching, laughing

I grab a sword from a hand that was fighting

Is this the way to be free?
Will you grant us justice before our slumber?
Before the cowards win and we die, defying…

The Tears We Shared


The Tears We Shared

We grew up together
And I saw every tear
Mine and yours
It’s what we shared

I watched over you
Whenever you went to sleep
And you did the same for me
Just to keep the monsters away

The adults were always there
But we were left behind
It never occurred to them
We always cried in our sleep…
