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.
