We are What We are
No soul makes you popular
Nor can it ruin who you are;
We all have our own way to move,
It's all about what we leave or choose;
Despite the ups and downs ahead
It's all about the height you achieved;
No soul creates the inner thunder
Of your life's eternal dream or desire.
It is the spirit who lies within you
The one who keeps on guiding you,
Whether there is light or dark around
It keeps on making you safe and sound.
No other soul leaves you or loves you
It's all within that hates you or hurts you,
That makes you ecstatic or blesses you,
Nothing else can get the place of inner you.
What you feel or preserve as a memory
Is nothing more than a fictional story,
To create your desired happy history
Retain the remote control of your glory.
