Stars are watching me...

Stars are wa'tching me,
Earth is catching me,
Sun is scorching me,
Moon is mocking me,
Sky is docking me
And life locking me.

Trees are slashing me,
Rocks are smashing me,
And air slapping me,
Seas are sliming me,
Deserts blinding me.

None affecting me.
Only surging me,
To swim, walk, fly,
On the head of thy.
Up in the skies,
Where fog lies....

But who dares!
Courage, war,
Faith, spirit,
And who cares
Humans and demons,
Only future omens.

To speak in silence,
To trot in violance,
To swim in deserts,
To thirst in waters
And volatile shatters?

Watching in ignorance,
Not 'veryone seers,
To achieve somethin',
Has to leave dears...

War and peace,
Light and dark,
Buried and alive,
Blunt and sharp,
Bound and isolated,
Courage and mockery,
Unknown and dated.
No difference at'all,
In one division fall.

What makes difference,
Is their occurance
What wins the other.
Light in the dark
Becomes shining mark,
Alive becomes buried,
Sharp becomes blunt,
Bound becomes isolate,
Courage becomes mockery,
Dated becomes unknown,
Heroes become thrown...

The story of life is
Only a big lie of His,
Only a dream to awake,
Thy soul in thy world
And return to His world.
So wait till death comes
And sea the dropp becomes.

When sun's shine withers
And earth's axis slithers,
Birds stop their twitters,
Stops the waters' shimmers,
And smiles and glitters.

This is world,
where everyone wants
to live not till death.
But till unknown.
Huh! happy mortals
And startled mortals...

Yes! stars are wa'tching m,
Earth is catching me,
Sun is scorching me,
Moon is mocking me,
Sky is docking me
And life locking me....
