Dark Shadows Light The Lives

Gained success and shinning in the world
There were issues, came straight or curled
As a pigeon fallen and bleeding on ground
But it recovered and flew around
We survived with a surrounding as a stormy dark desert
Which didn't give us a drop of water, we were so upset
But it taught us to achieve our goal
So we made it a forest full of trees and light for all

The shadows of our past lives
Are chasing us with flowers and knives
Maybe they came with dark or light
But we know we should have a fight
We will accept the soft smelling flowers
As well as the sharp knife blade throwers
As the rain keeps pouring
No matter who is snoring

Bearing the pain from our head to below our knees
As a wild bear bears the pain of the bees
We will keep fighting until we win
No matter the dark shadows coming to us as a sin
Try and work hard with all dark shadows who fight
Make those lighted with your lights
You can climb a tall big wall
First start it from a point which is small
