Against All Odds

Life is a rollercoaster
Sometimes you are soaring
Your soul happily roaring

Other times you are on the decline
Time turns and days go on
Dreams fade as youth vanishes
No day is like another

Once upon a time we dreamt
Every word an exciting hello
Yet as time goes by
Sarcasm takes hold of our heart
Once a hello, is now goodbye

We are haunted by a curse
The curse of the tireless seeker
The desired peace of the soul
Torn hearts with no possible cure

What is one to do?
After a long and arduous battle
We are left grasping for our very own sanity
Memories that lead us to perdition 
Constant moments of tenderness and madness

Are we to sleep while our eyes look awake?
We pick masks to hide our own horror
Yet the dreaded night will come
Singing to us is soft yet frightening lullaby

The dark night of the soul 
A painful hidden treasure
Where memories of joy and sorrow reside
In the depths of the abyss our freedom we must find

Sleep or peel the scales off our eyes?
Take the poison of normalcy and submission
Or dare to rise from the fire meant to destroy us
Like a phoenix expanding its wings
Defying the odds
Finding the power within

Rise I shall
I shall defy reason 
I shall sing my song
I shall let my gypsy spirit guide me
I shall expand my wings

I am no slave
My spirit won't be sacrificed on false altars
My knees won't bend to outside masters
Try as they might, my character won't break 
This rebel spirit of mine won't let me drown in defeat

I hear the song of my ancestors 
I feel their strength run through my veins
With each defying action I swim towards their cradle
They wait for me behind this mundane mist
For I am divinity incarnate
And I am meant to be free!

I passionately believe one person can make a difference. I write from my own experiences and interests. It is my greatest hope that by writing about my own challenges, victories, hopes and learnings, others may feel inspired to believe more in their inner power and to fully embrace themselves!
