the world within me
Author: Ella

Chapter 125
Pursuit

Pursuit
Many a time do I desire
To let it fall from my hands
Just leave whatever I pursue
Kill the sad pretense

The world is drunk on all its pleasures
My rude awakening
A half sober possibility
Its pleasures Iím still pursuing

Itíll ruin me and harden my heart
Block out all the light
I yearn for what this world can give
Please donít let me lose this fight

What am I fighting for I ask
I want to let it go
And drop everything just to rest
Still fearing Iíll have nothing to show

This mad dance of emotions
This overwhelming burden of proof
Holding it altogether
And seeming so aloof

Donít wait till you fall down
Donít wait till you burn out
And broken will you be
Filled with hurt and doubt

I need to realise now
How broken I already am
To focus on what matters
Treat treasures of the world with contempt

He is no fool to lose
What he cannot keep
Just so he can gain
The status as His sheep

The fear of losing loved ones
The fear of not being good enough
The fear of no security
The fear of life being tough

Just goes to show my heart
Is still far from the treasure
That I know for a fact
Would give me the greatest pleasure
