Chasing The Light-Chasing The Life
The feast was a delight; it was a fine night
From the comer of my eye, I saw a knight.
At first I thought I must be seeing things,
But the prediction had called for a battle between kings.
They all seemed to be chasing a light,
l had never before seen a greater fight.
Swords were flung, heads were hung,
The song of unhealing was what they sung.
Widowed women; orphaned children; they're everywhere,
They are the ones at who the vultures stared.
But they were just a burden to the lords,
They were just resource-depleting hordes.
Then I followed them into the light,
I'd never been at such a great height.
As blood rushed through my veins,
I saw rivers gush through the plains.
I'd never seen a land so beautiful and bright,
But then I saw the people they were filled with fright.
Then is when it hit me; there was an ongoing war,
The people fought for what was theirs
All they wanted was for peace to be restored.
I closed my eyes in hope that it would all go away,
When I Opened them, I found myself where I stay.
But I knew the feeling was strong the world I lived in was just wrong,
I had to find that lost world and that was the day when I had sworn.
I travelled a lot, took trains and flights,
It is what I live for; chasing the light, Chasing the light.
