A duel againts myself

A duel againts myself

A Poem by Raghib

So many scars on my body,
oh ! I have had .
Pretty to look at,
but theres something deep inside .
Fighting my own reflection,
I stand upright .
Whatever life throws at me ,
there will be a smile .

I wont kneel down,
know it beforehand.
Theres still more of me left,
For I have nothing inside .

Did you have a look at my fallen mask?
Oh! Please dont cry .
You never knew your enemy,
From deep inside .
Tripping on your own pride,
You are crumbling inside .
What a fucked up situation you are in,
This deserves a smile .

You will be kneeling down,
I knew it beforehand.
Look theres nothing of you left,
For there was too much inside .

sad and deep write,fighting against your self

Hmm, deep meanings, interesting analogy at the last stanza, all in all, it's a nicely written piece.

I think it's a great piece! it conveys emotion on a very relatable level. It spreads this sort of hidden message that everyone faces tough things. I think this is a really sentimental and thought out lyric. Hope you find good music to put the piece to and share more. Keep writing!

I really love it. I don't know what kind of music you want it to go to, but I have stuff like this too. Whenever I write lyrics I have a melody in my head, but I know other people can't hear it. Just by looking at your piece, I can see that whatever the rhythm is, it will sound great.

Is not a lyric just a poem put to music? I would suggest you use https://app.grammarly.com to edit your lyric. My question is what musical genera do you have in mind? I can imagine a strong driving drumbeat to help set the body in motion and strings to give voice to the words. I already have my head bobbing to the imagined beat as I reread your lyrics :~) Clap! Clap! Clap! Clap! Clap!
