MY NEW BEGINNING
In an open and clear road I restarted my journey The road view was promising and encouraging Felt the struggle of air against the vehicle body The tensed heat from the sun like nobody’s business The birds twitter was heard as the vehicle decelerate Again and again tyres were rolling faster and faster To cover a trillion of revolutions For my destination is peace.
The motion always has resistance
Punching the accelerator more to thrust against resistance Visit the break occasionally more to cope with road jams For I’m always on the look for traffic jams as well as obstacles The road goes clear again for one to speed up As I speed it seems like I wanna recover the lost time Far and far away I travelled on lime
Looking into the review at several point Made me to remember all the things I want to forget Miseries’ of the mysteries of where I come from Consuming the time I could have used to forgive myself Counting the bad things I have done Makes me wonder whether I can do any good Focused and moving forward I pictured my destination
Question after question arose
Did I have enough for the road?
Did I know the condition of the road?
Did I study and obey the road signs?
Is my vehicle road wealthy?
Do I have defined expectation of my destiny?
I became more alert and aware of my position More senses were activated throughout the journey The vehicle had a true purpose to serve The drive had the honour to lead the trip My ideas got refreshed and living became a reality My days are filled with pro-active thoughts And so my muscles know when to move and stop
The mirror have got vigilant eyes
And they use them righteously
They look at the beauty of the lady
It confirms the beauty at noon
It gives the final outlook at eve
The mirror speak but do not produce I sound They can tell every individual the story of their life And it is honest enough to be confidential No one can learn about another person from a mirror Mirrors are masters of privacy They will confess to a lady her looks
The looking glass of charms
As the lady sit before the mirror receives honour The lady can sit at the mirror, make up and improve appearance It always gives the morning confirmation to the loyal users What the mirror told develops confidence
The glass that always appreciate
It always encourages for improvement all the time Mirrors will always give positive feedback I will never miss the pleasure of keeping the mirror Goo people trust your mirror The awesome glass of true reflections
He is the way
And the light
That light meant for salvation
To fill up our everyday interventions
The light that improves visionary
It reveals everything to great hope
This light raises myself awareness
I study the word & know how to handle my surrounding And I calculate my way about
It is that light of truth
Opening the way of understanding
Where does this way lead?
It depend upon the light
The truth will be the ultimate discovery
Jesus you are the light
The light of the universe
You brought the word of life
Truth is the definition of the word
Wisdom is the fruit of the word
The light makes all possible
To access the Biblical concept
In the light there is Revelations
In the light visions are obtainable
In the light we work with honour
Be vigilant brethrens
The light dominant al things
It is the route of righteousness
In light we rejoice for our freedom
So I refuse darkness
And I will always seek this light.
