Strength

It's the genesis of the dawn
But the struggle is on
For I carry this pain
The gift I have gained
After all the mistakes
And the curse of the fate
That I couldn't evade

In this land alone
Without a trace to show
A way to a restful site
To rest and design
To reach the height
Where the people smile
And toil to climb
The endless sky

The repetitive whys
Takes all that lies
To propel my mind
So I cannot stand
And play with sand
To avoid despair
With a smile I bear
For it's better than before
I am not pondering anymore

But it always bothers
The sand will smother
And prove you weak
For he still reeks
In my recurring memories
With strength to go on
For the goal he longed
Turning his back
For what I lack
Which I cannot stand

So after the whys
I gaze at the sky
And exert to rise
For a tool to devise
In an arid land
The stress to stand
But I will persist
For the spirit exists
That I will never lie
And let you leave me behind
