Rookie - 10 Points (30 july / nigeria)

Alive


It always starts with an impulse…a sudden, but subtle surge.
Reality strikes an unnerving blow.
Steel-shut truth doors are suddenly opened;
As we blindly search for that beautiful glow.
A subtle surge it is…sudden…when we truly become alive.

It's that beautiful scent that arouses our spirit;
For some reason, oblivious to us,
We take hell, just for heaven's sake.
All is well, even with our burdened cross,
‘Cos for us, nothing matters…when we truly become alive.

    Impressive! We become truly alive when we recognize elements of life that move us through pain, suffering love and tenderness through time! Caring and sharing common bounds with the rest of humanity! We become alive when we able to get back on our feet after a painful downfall and move forward toward new horizons!

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
