You are a Martyr
You were once brought up
To follow two different paths –
Or shall we say you had
Three paths on which you are to follow!
You followed one path in school
And you followed two others at home!
Your mother was your leader
On the path you learned well!
Your father walked you on another,
One on which he raised you early!
While in school you were taught
To follow the path you do not walk at home!
You question deeply in your mind,
Which path you are about to take
As you stand at the tip of the fork road
Pondering hard which road to follow!
You set your feet to one and return
Only to walk the path of your destiny!
You stand there sorting out your life
And your destiny awaits you!
You hear it calling you by name
As you run in its arm’s embrace!
You leave the others lingering behind,
For the path you took is your true destiny!
You are strongly determined
And no one can pry you away
No matter how hard they try
To break your spirit apart,
You remain standing strong
And no one can ever mould you!
You received the many tortures
Even the worst ones of all times –
And still, your destiny upholds you!
You are never willing to back down
From your pride and your faith
No matter what stands in your way!
You would rather die faithful
As you hold onto your pride!
You are determined still
To reach your destiny
And you remain on your path
And no one can ever break you!
You still walk on your path,
For this destiny remains
Your journey even in the afterlife!
You know you found favour
Among the faithful and the angels
For you truly are a saint and a martyr!
