Today was a new dawn, The time that had been rancid until now, Was looking much less forlorn, Decrepit, yet still aglow. I smiled after a long time, Ready to take on the world I am now,
Lessons more valuable having learnt with prices less than a dime, Decrepit, yet still aglow. Roaring at my face they stand, mocking me everyday, I smile at them , that cool smile now back,
My brain unsheathed, their eyes swarmed with a ghost of betray, I smile back steadily, waiting for them to crack. My hands move stealthily, the brain stealthier, Dumb they were, to think that I was gone,
The sun shone bright upon the barriers, And smiled as the swords were withdrawn.
