It was your fault,
That this happened,
That this sparked,
Its all your fault.

It really is,
No matter what you say,
No matter what happens,
Its all your fault.

For if you set a fire under me,
Expecting a petty spark,
You instead get a wild fire,
Its all your fault.

It won't disappear,
It won't die down,
Its all your fault.

It will only grow,
And start up new flames,
Its all your fault.

You wonder why its all your fault?
Well the answer is simple,
Its all your fault,
For setting me ablaze.

Pluck in center forward,
Self-starter in half-forward (right) and
Doers in half –forward (left);
Put Erudite as midfielder
Put Warden in back
Put Conjecture at last with
Scruples as goal keeper
Start the game
To win the cruise of life.......

In the memories of my childhood friend Robin, Who always ardent for football and try to interpret everything following football ground.

Set fire to my soul
Play the music till it burns
Watch me crumple into ashes
As the whole world takes its turns
Tears come into my eyes
But as the music takes its hold
Warmth fills my body
And I no longer feel so cold
And I
Need the light
And I
Need the light
And I
Need the light
To save me
To save me
From the darkness

Is there any other way out
Fighting on my own
Is all I've ever known

Breaking down
I take your pain
Feeling it in my bones

This path
I chose myself
On the front lines

Too much to bare
Taking on the pain
Within myself and you

Stuck in this life
Always been on my own
Refusing to be saved

Trying to save everyone
For some kind of salvation
This is the broken generation

I put myself in a cage
So you could be free

Maybe this was
The wrong way

I can't let go

Reaching out for me
I'm not there

Will you fix me
I yearn for your touch
But cannot let go
Of this desperate mind

This cage
Is my home

Break me out

Can you set me free

My roots aren't here
They never were
I planted some crops
But they were imported
An ideal situation this land may be
To the adaptable, changing and innovative breeds
It is habitable to the natives and hybrids that are able to flourish
But me, my roots come from a different tree
They belong somewhere else
They always have
I can survive in new elements
But only with proper care and chemicals
The artificial adaptations eventually take their wear
And usually from the inside out
Without the natural nourishment I whither
So as thankful as I am for a land that harvested growth
It is essential to my survival that I find my proper home

Pay attention to what God wants to show you;
embrace the regenerated self created in God’s image;
a wandering mind of distractions, unable to focus,
leads you to trouble and and adverse situations,
when not following the principles of Christ Jesus.

To sincerely follow your heart’s desire,
while avoiding the issues of double-mindedness,
you must properly set and keep your mind;
when waiting on God’s timing for your life,
the things that you will actually find…

are the genuine blessings that God had intended.
While the mind of the Spirit is life and peace,
personal growth is only possible via humility;
exaggerated opinions of oneself are dangerous,
for they severely impact your spiritual acuity.

Seriously concentrate on the higher things of God!
Renewed thoughts come from studying of The Word
and a humbled mind of Christ becomes accessible.
Trust the Bible and apply its truths, whereby…
earthly problems are still divinely addressable.

Yes, I’m more than ready, looking forward to your call,
I’m in no drastic hurry, but I prefer that you don’t stall.
I’ve lived a full complete life; I’ve paid my dues and more,
Feel free to choose an entrance, be it window, or be it door.
I’ll take with me my memories, some wonderful, some not,
The heartaches I’ve experienced, I’ve wished I had forgot.
I’ve had my fill of women, good times and good time friends,
These decades of redundancies, I thought would never end.
What’s left for me to challenge? What’s more for me to do?
Can we now just get it over with, and make your dream come true?

I’m exhausted, yet enlightened, that such thrills have long worn out,
For I’m not some raving lunatic, longing to remain about.
Wake up and smell the roses, you’ve been deceived my friends,
You’re clinging to illusions, for the living are the dead.
And when we die is when we’re born, not what we’ve all been taught,  
The Non-Grim Reaper unlocks the traps to the cages we’ve been caught.
And no, I’m not unhappy, and no, I’m not depressed,
It’s just that I know the next world’s so much better than the rest.
So once you’ve said your finals, goodbye family, friends, and pets,
You will find in the hereafter, that in stone each path’s been set!

with each setting sun
I let go a tiny part of you.

with each rising sun
I welcome a tiny part of a new beginning, in me.
