I Can
I Can

There is one thing I have to say,
What my soul felt that day.
When the drug made its way,
And I started to fade away.

How should I describe the night, My mom couldn’t sleep until I was home alright.
She yelled and screamed at me,
For all the right reasons to be.
That wasn’t her but the pain in her eyes,
This is what I now realise.

I had tears in my eyes,
But the drug running through my veins.
My heart pumped blood,
But the pain was like flood.

I had sorrow on my face, But now it was out of my pace.
My mind went insane,
Forever I thought it will remain.

I was weak and sore, A lot things I couldn’t do anymore.
I rubbed my hands to ease the ache,
I was all fine, I started to fake

This is just a nightmare,my dear lad,
Miracles do happen, told my dad.
Hands that once applauded my achievement,
Wiped my tears and pain,
For all the happiness I am meant,
He said I will gain.

His words hit my heart,
And pushed me up for a new start.

I must know where I want to go,
I have the entire world to know.
I have my brain, to use it wise,
I am smart enough to learn and rise.

I have two eyes, to see through right and wrong,
And decide where do I belong.
I have a mouth to speak that matters,
And speak up before everything shatters.

I know in my way, will come obstacles,
But it is all about how I tacle.
Just like the gray clouds come with the rain,
There will be a little pain before the gain.
With all these equipments, I began,

And when I looked in the mirror again,
I held myself together,
And said, I can.
