Back to the Top

Till this day, I notice my world is dark,
Trapped alone, left with no more spark.
Never thought that I could be so wrong,
Regrets in front of the colorless dawn.
I feel hopeless, desperate, moreover weak,
Remembering that once I was at the peak.
An empty step forward and here I fell,
Did not stop until I reached hell.
I've long been wondering about defeat,
It's so unfair it's an unjust cheat.
Today I know that I am lost,
But must find my way, no matter what it costs.
I belong to the top, I need to climb back high,
To regain the glory when I am up in the sky.
Troubles and pains, I'll take you on-
Back to the place I once had won.
