Right In The Place Where 'They' Live


People who did it had no idea,
That I loved every moment...
When they were smearing my name,
By the making of their false claims.

There is nothing like knowing,
The direction one makes and what it takes...
To maintain a discipline to learn,
And not attempt to escape from making mistakes.

Interests I have are not in ego cemented.
I am determine to establish,
The possible from obstacles and impossiblilities.
And do it in a place someone suggested to recommend,
I would succeed if I should leave.

There is nothing like knowing,
The direction one makes and what it takes...
To fulfill dreams and overcome heartbreaks.
But the doing it can be proven and with kept faith.
To stop doubters and shut their mouths,
With an observing who can pave a path...
And open closed gates right in the place where 'they' live.

'I didn't know...'

You needn't bother to continue.
As long as I did,
To me that is all that matters.

'But how did you...? '

Escape from your criticisms?

'Well...
Yes.'

I didn't try.
I relied upon them.
