Old Songs In The Air

Old songs in the air, a melody
carried on and on.

I used to be that way,
an image made by those who
cannot turn their lives into
something,

something in the level of greatness.

I struggled, fought what I
really wanted,

but the end failed me.
I became the song, the lyrics
of life, the sentence of imperfection.

Old songs in the morning, a
melody broken by some ghosts.
They remain to be sung, they remain
as a remembrance of a once upon a time.
