Walk On

Lost...

now that I can see

The future

ain't what it used to be.


Like a poet without vision

An object of mockery...

A dreamer who lost his dream

to reality


Won't give up

though the going's slow

I'll trade all my footsteps

for a shot at tomorrow


Tattoo my intentions

across these streets of time

and fight till the future

is once again mine.


'Cos I'm the immortal

Baptized in fire

Unable to die

unless I desire


I'm the light

piercing the darkest dawn

I'm the human spirit

Walking on


I'm down

and so close to out

I'm the foot soldier

who suffered the rout


But I'll stand again

in conquest of pain...

To walk on

as a king among men


I'll make mistakes

of that I'm sure

Lose my strength

when I need more


Taste my fear

in life's battlefields

But I won't trade

my sword for the shield


'Cos i'm the immortal

Baptized in fire

Unable to die

unless I desire


I'm the light

piercing the darkest dawn

I'm the human spirit

Walking on


-Suraj Mani

"I'm the human spirit Walking on"
