Heard it before,
Hearing it again;
Relishing its melody,
Enduring the pain.
Drifting away with its tune
Letting go of all control.
It keeps strangling my soul,
Yet, I remain quiet as a stone.
The ruthlessness, the stakes-
They make me stronger day by day.
The subtle rhythm controls my heartbeat,
Hurdling me forward lest I retreat.
Teaching me to move ahead slowly,
My master; it’s a blissful cacophony.
