Vanished

Six years of my life

Vanished like the night before

Come morning and the sun’s up

Hear it, hear it

Here comes the pain

Those numbers wasted away

Never to return back to life

As I sit here by the sun

I wonder about my dreams

Possibilities gone with those years

Washed away with the tide before

 

Six years of my youth dead

Bones and skins: bare soul

Moments transcending my current grief

Fear has no meaning around here

Only an avenue I must walk on

 

I was born a free one

Though the past has me a slave

Those cube box and filtered waves

Has my way rendered

But I must persevere

For those six years are long gone

Vanished with the night before

Full with lackluster experiences

 

Come morning, I’m born again

Afresh with a new voice

For all I have are my ink and sweat, both combined
