Rules!


Rules!
I have a ruler in my hand;
But, the ways of life is always full of rules,
With rulers here and there.

What is life that i cannot always understand its ways?
Tell me if you know;
Maybe, you might have crossed over the River of Crocodiles.

What is love that i am yet to understand its ways?
Tell me if you know;
Maybe, you might have seen the Bright Star.

Rules!
With the laws around us to straighten us up;
But, i still need a teacher to lead me on.
