Vassim Suraj

Lone Ranger - Poem by Vassim Suraj

Life never gives you a second chance
Either you make it or break it.
Atleast that's what she was thought
Elders paved a way
And they asked her to follow
But her mind was set for
Something that's beyond her reach
For the less traveled way
Was the one she wanted.

They blamed her
She was thrown out
Entered a new phase did she
A territory unfamiliar
Any soul would loose their hope
In this treacherous path
But she wasn't one
Who gave up easily

Brick by brick
Stone by stone
She paved her path
There wasn't anyone
To see her through
Neverthless she fought
What lies ahead
Glory or be sorry
She went on
There came a point
Confused was her mind
Where would she go?
To the left, where nothings right
Or to the right, where nothings left.

Tough was her mind
Strong was her will
Heads held high
She marched on.
There were thorns
There were stones
Her body was hurt
But not her soul.

Time did pass
Society mocked
People laughed
All their words
Fell on her ear
That she trained to be deaf.
But she could see
A little more was the distance
And there was the pole.
Steady did my lone ranger go.
Summit was where she reached.

On the summit
Stood my lone ranger
She could see
Every single soul
That laughed at her
Now hers was the turn
To return the favour.
She had proved them wrong

A billion people wouldn't enough
When a determined soul
Was against them.
So my friend
Keep your heads held high
Stay strong
For the people would say
As long as their tongues would roll
Summit would you reach
And dumb would they be.
But The path isn't easy
Make it and you would remembered
For then and now and forever!
