Die A Legend

I see lights glimmering in the sky
I see eaglets yearning to fly
Within me thoughts and desires collide
Fears preclude me from dreaming wide

But today I set sights on glowing stars
Hoping to inherit glittering of Gold bars
Let fathomless tenacity elevate my spirit
Today I'm recreating my life, to relive it
Dust of hope , propel me towards immortality
For that I'll retrace my steps with audacity

Life surely ends , but I hate dying
I can feel my death coming
Yet this life hasn't been lived to fullest
It has been a dark night , the dullest
I've seen roads diverging
I've seen the young ageing
By dint of lassitude dreams faded
I've seen lives entirely wasted

Like rocks and steel corroding
A fertile soil of dreams was eroding
That pierced my heart, left discernible scar
A wound to be healed by being a star
For that I wanna Die a Legend
I wanna be a praised, adored in heaven

Never had I been heroic on Earth
Never had I been watched on my path
Yet my buddies resembled angels to me
They all die legends to me
cause it isn't about routes taken
It's about spirit of ambition reawaken.
