I WANT TO SHINE BY MY OWN GLOW


Impatience in nerves flow
Anguished heartbeats to n fro
Desire to win over the world
To smolder more within
Rise up high like flames
Now aspirations intensify more
Determined to get dissolve in ME
TODAY I WANT TO
SHINE BY MY OWN GLOW

Yearning to break free
The manacle of obligations
Wipe out they do not hold water
Tall tales of phony conventions
These precious moments passing by

 Will never again turn back into vision
Now I want to believe in ME
TODAY I WANT TO
SHINE BY MY OWN GLOW

Savor this moment to not let go
Shed fears in your soul
They slow and diminish
The rate of knots
Impede aspirations to rise higher
Overcast my place in the sun
Geared up to behold strengths in ME
TODAY I WANT TO
SHINE BY MY OWN GLOW


Boost up the spirits
Let this zeal not die down
Rise up like a phoenix
From the quandaries
Thy progression will be the retort
Jinx will meander  to sanctify
Divine will now melt in me
I WILL TODAY
“SHINE BY HIS GLOW IN ME”

Tameka said...

Manisha, I can see this recited in a circle of like-minded souls. Each taking a verse and saying it with their own meaning. Then lighting of candles and uttering of promises to hold each person accountable to their own truth. Wonderful read!
