    No longer holding drops of sadness now

    There will come a day when the
    Heavens will
    Open their doors to those who’ve
    Mistakenly, mis-understandingly fell to
    Poison their souls with the joys of the world.
    So many will rise in the face of the rain.. it’ll all be
    Over, the rain will go away
    Never to return again.

    Every small step will be towards
    Something

    Reality of the situation won’t stop me;
    I’m going somewhere this time – a
    Zenith if you will – the
