    Past

    Oh ! How the past haunted me -
    Every time I tried to pull my head up,
    it thrashed me on the ground
    Felt so scared inside but I could not make a sound.
    I fought my shadow, fought my ego
    My life lost its meaning and I had nowhere to go.
    Over and over again it blocked my path with failure
    But the battle was lost because I'm still here !

    Days after days spent inside the darkest cave
    Barely clinging on to life, hoping I wouldn't cave
    Nowhere to hide and nowhere to run !
    vicious creatures lurking at every turn -
    They wished me the worst luck, wanted my life to fail
    Tried to throw me off the edge, straight towards the hell
    I was fighting for just one chance, while they fed on my fear
    But the battle was lost because I'm still here !
