the Debts! by Roy

Note: Inspired from a conversation with Dee Kay

I searched for the justification 
to the unfairness of my life
I fed my insecurities with my emotions
to fuel the inner strife
I cowered in my caves beside my demons
to gather the ability to survive

I never accepted that I had been beaten 
and life was not going to connive
the debts that I yet had to pay
for the broken promises to myself
that never saw the light of the day

I wiped the stream of my tears that fed me with fear
I opened eyes to lost promises that were about to disappear
I made one last promise yet again to the bundle of previous ones
that my flaws and scars will become now my beacons

I stood up with my staggering feet
to the storm of the darkness of depression
I smiled at it from my bottomless pit
for I knew the only path now was up to the sun

I will walk down the end of the journey
I will keep moving until I meet my destiny
Imperfections of mine will be my Alias
Failures of mine will become my Atlas

I am not a runaway
to the debts that I yet have to pay
Those broken promises will now see the brightness of the day
for I am here to STAY!
