True Wealth


I don't know why

But i cant sleep properly these past nights

Sometimes i am running, and sometimes i am falling from great heights

Sometimes gets scared and sometimes i hear cries

Sometimes sinking and sometimes getting up in middle of dark nights


Yesterday i woke up in middle of my dreams

The dreams that were too precious for the child inside me

But slowly they feel like a race with endless laps

Even if i go into deep sleep, the end line i might never able to see


Those were okay, i thought they were part of everyones life

But nowadays even my breathing subsides

Firstly i thought they were the preparation for stepping into adult world

They were making me stronger by making me jump through these hurdles


I don't know why, but i am only seeing the dark sides

Saw people running towards some paper and some were trying to hide

Most of them died crying and few were laughing while throwing those notes like a die


Is this the world they live in? I asked to myself

And next moment i knew that something broked inside, that was used to be my true wealth

But instead of running like those old fools 

I am gonna live my life by fixing what i think is the true guide

I know that i also have to join the race 

Maybe not today but tomorrow 

But i don't wanna be a part of those crying face 

Instead i will try to live my life like those few happy case
