21

the sun surely is brighter,
the moon has cast the shadows away,
looking into the wind of prosperity i smile
the prophecy has been fulfilled
a pace of life has changed

the curtains of curiosity have been revealed
stupidity has been blown into the ocean,
an ocean which is full of desire and only that
still grateful post-mortem aren't a test for me
drama is what clouds the sky yet we find it riveting

cursing the culture i was breed in
the very bane of my existence,
from the soil i was raised,
and from it i shall reveal my truth,
my everlasting commitment to loyalty

from the womb of a strong women i came,
and into the jungle i was meant to raise
like a thief i shall reach my limit
my limit of greatness, my limit of love
or i will be an urban legend with half life

so the spring has run its course,
the lion has to find and groom its pride
a new pride of the unscathed, and untouchable
the societal expectations have risen to their highest
at 21 i hope life becomes a little bit brighter...
