When circumstances crush your soul, all you wait for is the new dawn to break free.

Soul that by dreams was inspired
As fiery as fire
Drained it remained
With hopes still higher
Wounded I feel
With everyone around
Screaming inside
I no more want to be bound
Glad I am
For all is so lit
But my heart aches
As my soul says “enough, that’s it.”

Talk about it, they say
It makes you feel light
Forget about it, I feel
That is the only way right.

Too heavy is this
Burden of memories
I wish i could throw away
Some of it at least
And breathe with ease

No way out as if it seems
A marshland in which
I drench till deep

Will these broken wings
Let me fly
Or I shall be down
With a blow in a while

Even then I will dare to say
It’s dawn and not dusk
For me, today.
