Let me, O Rebel!

Shattered dreams all around,
The walls broken, ruins of fate,
Yet I see you standing tall,
Ready to once again collate
the fragmented desires.

Dreamer you are,
Thinker too,
Staring at the dark sky,I think of
The early days with you.

Horizon that is bruised, battered
Memories that are just flashes
Of kin and the fray
Seem like on the path are splashes.
Oh! the sruggle you had to endure.

Let me be your strength
Let me nurse you to health
Dont keep me at length. 
Rebel you are, Maverick too!

Betrayed by destiny,
I wont betray you.
Jolted back to reality,
I'm there too.
Trust me just this once.

Refuse to concede defeat
You want to rise.
Let me be the phoenix
Soothing with my cries.

Believe with yourself.
Believe in me.
Betray you I will not
Listen to my plea.
O Rebel, O Maverick!

( PS: The tears of the pheonix are supposed to heal wounds..
