Fight what gets you down.
You have to fight what gets you down,
Whatever it is, the past chances are blown.
The future may look bleak cos’ she hurt you,
Problems increase and stick to you like glue.
When I was left to be alone, it felt bad
You were laughing when I was left to be sad.
Within these sad moments, I felt the darkness,
Now the light has exceeded its own brightness.
At times I would drown in my own tears,
I admit this depression became a big fear.
The world can treat me like a man of ego,
My reply is to tell the waste to leave, so GO!
If you saw the heart that I burnt back then,
It was a romantic heart with no substance.
I don’t regret falling in the thing called love,
Today, my heart has a soul and I have risen above.
The only friend I had was a pen and paper,
I told everything else that ‘I will see you later’.
I fought with my subconscious for over a year,
Now I find it hard to think of you and shed a tear.
I accept the fact that I was close to going insane,
What I used to cry over, Oh God, she was lame.
Problems will have to come and go with time,
The fact is neither happiness nor sadness is a crime.
The pills had messed up my senses completely,
Today, I feel calm as happiness is voluntary.
Now, I am smiling cos’ I feel my life is beautiful,
The heat now feels hot and the cold feels cool.
