To Burn is His Destiny!!

and so darkness descended on his soul...
as the heart was fed to the devil....
and the shroud of night took him in her arms...
he lost consciousness but still fought on.
fighting a losing battle may be...
but the gamble was to be made...
may be it had to be this way....
but this shall not be the end....
the night has to give way to the day.....
the skies have to clear after the rain....
the fear of the dark shall be too great...
for in darkness does the heart really glow.....
lest he should loose his way.....
he tethers his mind to an existence....
should he get reduced to ashes....
he shall rise... rise again.....
the devil can never have his heart....
the satan can never claim him....
he is the phoenix........
to burn is thus his destiny!!

let fate conspire against him...
and throw him down to the deepest mires...
let the world test him....
and wound him all the time....
he will move on... and take his flight...
his heart will flutter till it can...
and sing as long as he breathes...
for he believes in the light....
the light of the soul...
for he believes in a brand new day....
for he is the phoenix....
and he shall rise...
should he be reduced to ashes!!

tease him... tie him...
supress him.... undo him...
he will breathe in your soul...
for he will mark you forever..
the vagaries don't scare him...
and the truths don't daunt him....
coz, to burn is his destiny....
for he is the phoenix!!
