When all the mundane beings conspire against you,
When your morality is chained down,
Your rationality in question.
When your dreams are being trampled on,
When your own hands misguide you,
Your inner demons cripple your soul.
When your kinsmen oppose your forte,
When your fidelity is a big question,
Your worthiness crumbling.
When your valentine abdicates you,
Vacates your soul,
And all you have is a minced body.
Hold on mate, hold on!
Embrace the deadlock,
Enhance the flame within you,
For there’s hope on the other side!
