Too furious, destructive and agitated you are
going to land up in trouble one day
where no one will save you they stated so far
how lonely the life will be this way
The anger you carry behind that mask
boiling beneath the calm surface
will only burn you if kept hidden in your cask
without any outlet, oh you’ll become a haze
I kept listening to them for a while
carefully analyzed each word
then greeted them with a smile
which turned out to be a double edged sword.
For they were more frightened now
at a reaction so contrary to what they thought
but the peace it gave they wondered how
the anger subsided, a conflict inside they fought.
I asked them did you ever notice my laughter?
what does it make you think about me?
or it never bothered you then to look after
what will it result into, what I needed to be?
And so you continued to press my emotions
until the breaking point they reached
not being afraid of me till I followed your notions
that confinement, as a morality I had preached
You were burning me
while I kept finding the source
where was that heat, I couldn’t see
you kept it invisible, yeah that hidden force
Now you make me afraid of the fire
that I have given birth to
tell me the consequences so dire
oh it will burn not me but you
The chains you have tied me by
will melt from the rage beneath the calm
and millions of me will come out of thy
confinement so invisible but has caused us harm
We will burn down into ashes
only to rise above and reach the sky
we will fill this atmosphere with flashes
of our pride, victory and identity so high.
And you will nowhere to be seen
completely destroyed without a mark
forgetting where have you been
we will light this world with our own spark.
