On Fate's Lonely Lane [On Fate’s Lonely Lane]

I am the child
the land defiled.
In my limping heart
is a blooming art.

Laying my stooling pride
in this torrent tide,
under the rain,
my joy was stained.

Envisioned for years long
to table a song
about my ballistic life
in this cruel strife.

I view the light
in its shadowy might.
Thus, I sorrowfully bear,
without a soulful care,

To bear the cross
of fear and loss,
to lick the sweet
from the earth’s feet.

If today blows death,
I will gladly take in breath;
Awaken sleeping sparrows
to hold my tomorrow.

I am the nature
of the sinking future,
wandering in the face
of mercy and grace.
