See me now

Watching the morning sunrise
I recall events of my life
despite all the wrong turns and low tides
my faith and determination made me survive
feel myself so complete when I look at myself through my own eyes
cannot stop smiling my victorious smile
when you find this as a surprise
someone you thought of ordinary and weak stands so high
living a life worthwhile
I started my journey of several miles
all those broken dreams and hopes I again compiled
though you left me almost exiled
I turned to candle, I tried, strived and survived
for today I’m the star that spreads it’s own light
I hope you see me now
you would not believe your eyes but that’s how
I’ve learnt to glow

Over truth you preferred to tell me lies
my delicate dreams and hopes all vaporized
after all now I know it takes someone special to recognize
the ability, talent and potential that we may hide
at a time over my fate I endlessly cried
then arrived days when my tears turned dry
in this isolation I discovered my new destination and learnt to fly
after each fall I became more determined than before to try
at a time I was terrified but today I’m satisfied
rose up and regained my sight
every single moment I utilized
to ascend to heights I always idealized
and today my dream is visualized
I turned to candle, I tried, strived and survived
for today I’m the star that spreads it’s own light
I hope you see me now
you would not believe your eyes but that’s how
I’ve learnt to glow
