Learning

On a stretching hallway of doors
Each one flings into an uncharted

The paths here are lit by the moon
Maps are traced out of constellation

Campfire rises and dances like fireflies
Ah, you keep learning to feel alive

Not everyone deserves your kindness

Not everyone deserves to taste your kindness,
After being mistaken for blindness.
Charity has become a famous symbol,
Leaving the poor into dirty gamble.
Why go out and thrash the innocent,
First, try to make your home magnificent.

Not everyone deserves to taste your kindness,
Even after you overcame the sourness.
From tons of ways to give back to society,
Make sure only one to notice is almighty.
Time and resources aren’t scarce,
It’s you who’s constantly on a race.

Not everyone deserves to taste your kindness,
Do it for self regarded highness.
Hope so high that it vanishes the reality,
Keep taking the tough route of anonymity
Who needs your big fat surplus reserves,
They take it to feed those hungry curves.

Air and Fire

It is not important — the why
we are the way we are this instance

I, compressing at air 
you, taming fire

But our job is not to water down,
mold till we reflect each other

For you are born to be infinite
and I, to paint the city orange in colour

Never too dark to stay

To everyone,
Maybe you’re lost and looking for sunshine,
Maybe you’re sad and looking for a smile.
So,
Here I am to tell you,
You’ll get what you want, only if you try.
The struggle will be hard, and maybe you’ll cry.
They’ll try to make you stop,
You’ll have to walk alone.
But remember,
That does not mean you’re going all wrong.
There will come days you’ll see no light,
You have to trust your dreams,
Continue to go on and fight.
For all this as I end now in short I say,
It will never be too dark for you not to stay.

Let it pass

If the pain comes
drink it up
When it goes
Let it pass

Make our own fire

In the bleak
we make our own fire;
there is no need
to lose hope

Sunflower

I only wanted to be free
Live against the gravity
Infinite, the colour white — I am sunlight!

But if I am light
I cannot love the shadows
How can I fly? With half body heavy in soil

Each of them
Formed a vein and spread like roots
I am no sunlight, I am only a sunflower
