Burn It Away.

What is written in those letters doesn't matter,

what matters is that you've moved from before,

to become better.

Yeah, your heart may be sober

over the revenge, you couldn't take,

the pains you couldn't give to others,

the wounds you've nursed alone,

but the smoke and the ashes from the burning past,

is burning your anger away,

to give you a new start.


Why carry unnecessary cargoes

when you can easily watch it go and flow away

as a piece of paper floats on water.

Why harbour so much trauma,

when you can easily watch your life

change from gory scenes to glorious scenes.

Why cleave to your shortcomings

when you can embrace your bloomy upcoming.

You have no idea,

of the relief from the past.


Burn it away and forget the ashes,

don't look back while burning,

lest you change your mind

and keep the unburnt part.

Burn it away totally and begin a new page of yourself.

Though it is hard and difficult to start over,

with time, you'll surely come over

and from coming over, you'll overcome

those things that look extremely impossible.

And again, you'll be on the bright side of life.
