Die Another Day

I find myself in the eye of a storm again

Fighting it seems pointless

I am squinting to find my way out

This brief despair and astigmatism requires

Fresh perspective and lenses!

I stand alone in this choice between life and death

And somehow death seems more selfish

Hmm.. I have made my choice

.

I’m not the one to be driven to death

I’ve not even begun

Yes, I’ll die another day

.

No,

I’m not that tragic hero,

I’m not that wounded soldier,

I’m not that beaten player,

I’m not that broken dream,

Not even that crushed petal

No, I am not that.

.

The spark’s still alive

The flame burns brighter with each breath

I’ll die another day

 

*

 

I want your thundering applause

That deafening happiness I deserve

When alone I stand tall

Screaming victory with my hands apart,

Embracing the energy thrown on me

By you,

You- who’ve seen me through it all,

Don’t need your sympathy when I fall

.

Is another life waiting after death?

Do I gamble these dark days for none at all?

Nah! I’ll die another day

.

Yes,

That shower of success,

That envelope of love,

That kiss of destiny,

That cry of happiness,

Also, that song of peace

You must know, it’s not just a lucid dream

.

Not saying that unlike others I’ll be leaving this world alive

But I’m not done just yet

I’ll die another day
