A New Dawn


7_10_12NewDawn

Step after step,
We walk ahead,
Learn what we must,
And move on ahead.

Bleeding from our eyes,
And crying from our hearts,
We move away from life,
With a smile and nothing else.

Scars hidden deep down,
Hidden by layers of lies,
Only a smile to show for,
The broken spirit inside.

One face for the mirror,
Another one for the world,
We’re all just as broken,
As the glass beneath our feet that lies.

A clean white soul may arrive,
Such is our hope for redemption,
In our being we can’t deny,
The struggle for vindication.

The shackles of guilt may fall away,
The weight of betrayal may rise,
Half alive we can only pray,
For life to lose  its disguise.

Love believes its truth,
Is the only hope we live by,
Those who cant see it,
May in their own lies die.

One final time I close my eyes,
I’ll pray for a new beginning,
To wake up to the light,
Of a brand new dawn.

Mea Culpa


The light within that shines,
The one that dims with time,
Through no one’s folly,
But my own, Mea Culpa.

The cross i bear upon my heart,
That wasn’t there from the start,
Its carved out of no one’s sins,
But my own, Mea Culpa.

Nightmares that I see at night,
Of my and my beloved’s fight,
The doom of no one’s love,
But my own, Mea Culpa.

The way the world looks at me,
This world that I want to flee,
The unrest is no one’s,
But my own, Mea Culpa.

Utter silence of my soul,
A heart as burnt as coal,
Is there no one left to save me,
But me alone, Mea Culpa.

I confess to my sins,
And welcome in me the pins,
Of god’s punishment and my karma,
For my salvation alone, Mea Culpa.

What remains with me now,
Is just the when and the how,
Of my past and the lessons learnt,
All just my own, Mea Culpa.

But daylight is here once more,
To sooth my soul so sore,
I begin to heal with love,
With me remains, Mea Culpa.

Hands folded again in prayer,
I kneel in reverence of my past,
For it’s been my greatest teacher,
And will save me from Mea Culpa.

And while the karmic powers,
Conspire and aspire for me,
I shall forever remember,
Mea Culpa, Mea Culpa, Mea Maximus Culpa…
