In This Divide

Strayed into myself
To find this sort of faint star
That shone even in this divide
Of where I’d come to be displaced
But maybe here, where time is fleeting
I’ll try to fly, but not to stray

Cause we face the tides
Of will and divine
Though we mystify
What we flee and feel today

Strained by overgrown dreams
Rooted in disillusionment
But in the hour fate flaws
I know I’m not alone
And fall, it’s the way I know
And fall, it’s the way I’ll grow

Cause we face the tides
Of will and divine
Though we mystify
What we flee and feel today

And why, when there’s a way
Above the fire that fears of drought fill,
Do I crawl

~ Lyrics by Azam Ali
From the Album: Elysium for the Brave

    lol, it’s sounds amazing when its sung by Azam Ali. I just like this struggle she is illustrating here between free will and destiny. We are confused by what we feel and by what we run away from. It’s a really mystical sounding song with some gloominess to it, but it puts me in a good mood.

    Amidst all of our struggles, we try to fly.. but we try not to fly astray. That is what I get out of this poem/song :)
