I will always be "me"....

The rules of the world,
Are but so strange,
I love myself,
Yet I am forced to change,
Yes, I am a new person now,
For the world to see,
But deep down inside,
I will always be "me"!!!

The miner....

The miner digs,
Nice and slow,
Dust and sweat mingle to form,
Droplets on his brow,
He traverses,
Underground tunnels and caves,
Through day and night,
He only slaves,
Darkness engulfs him,
There's no light,
His destination, for sure,
Is out of sight,
His crude hands blacken,
As he digs through the coal,
But all he cares of,
Is to reach his goal,
He is strong and determined,
And continues to mine,
Till finally in his path,
Precious diamonds shine,
From the humble miner, we have,
Lots of lessons to learn,
Work hard, don't give up,
And success will come to you in return!!!

The Two Princes....

My attempt to write a ballad...

Two princes born to the same king,
One evil, the other good,
Two different buds of the same plant,
The irony, never understood!

They both grew with time,
In thoughts and in actions too,
One became wicked and cruel,
The other, righteous and true.

As time passed by, days and years,
The king of the land grew old,
He wondered, “which one should be crowned?,
The king’s position, which one should hold?”

The evil one already knew,
That the natural choice was the other,
But the devil inside him rose,
Wanting to get rid of his brother.

He poisoned his brother’s food,
With the deadliest poison known,
“I always win”, he said to himself,
And rejoiced all alone.

That night fate played a game,
And the royal maid fell ill,
Her daughter accidently exchanged,
The plate intended to kill.

In his chamber alone,
The evil prince choked, went out of breath,
The poison supposed to put an end to his brother,
Was taking him closer to his own death!

Inside him a voice spoke,
It bellowed loud and clear,
“As you sow, so shall you reap”,
“What you do will come back to you, dear!”

The evil prince perished,
He had paid for his sins,
Its true, what they say,
Over evil, good always wins!

Break Up.....

"It's over", you said with no emotion,
And walked away with the other girl,
Those words slashed my heart like a knife,
And the bleeding was uncontrollable.....

I still remember your false promise,
That your love for me would never change,
You broke your promise, and shattered my dreams,
Left me feeling lonely, shocked and strange.....

I gave up everything for you,
My dreams and my desires,
And you gave me only pain in return,
You set my emotions to fire.....

Am still roaming about,
Trying to collect the ashes,
Still trying to heal my heart,
Full of bruises and scratches.....

This break up has broken me,
Shattered me to a million pieces,
And though I try to act strong,
Deep down, the pain never ceases!!!!
