When you see them Smile

 

When you see them smile,
Take their smiles seriously not,
For they’re just pretence,
Foresee their fault no evidence,
Blinding you with flashing light.

When you see them smile,
They love you,
You inspire them,
They keep you going,
Though it’s an opposite of the stanza.

When you see them smile,
They’re planning the worst for you,
They move under your feet,
Destroying you chunk by chunk
Like a poison slowly killing you,
Destroying your morning with a black widow shadow.

When you see them smile,
Know that they’ve planned and done with you,
You’re as good as dead to them,
Walking dead is your passion,
Breaking you silently is their mission.

When you see them smile,
They drive you on a hideous journey,
In a circus of a blazing fire and ocean waves,
You move – you’re dead.
They enjoy observing you in that position.

When you see them smile,
They meticulously laugh at you,
For none shall suspect them,
They are your beautiful sinners,
They made sure they clenched everything you desire.

When you see them smile,
Be careful ……

 

This life I am borrowed

 

This life I am borrowed.
Ain’t I lucky to have it?
What am I to do with it?
How am I to prosper with it?
How many they don’t have it?

This life I am borrowed.
I am going to win,
I am going to succeed,
I am going to rise above hate,
I am going to treasure it.

This life I am borrowed.
I will use it respectfully,
To honour the One who borrowed me,
I will accomplish all my missions,
Become someone’s hero.

This life I am borrowed.
Do I know when I’m going to lose it?
Do I know what tomorrow holds?
Do I have to sit blank-minded
And listen to the voices inside of me?

This life I am borrowed
Means much to me,
I will create many great memories with it
Until I am borrowed again….
