The Ignition 2 !!!

Emergency, Emergency. He kept screaming

My eyes fluttered and shut, as I kept dreaming

Oblivious of my environment

I laid still, worse than a monument

But then Mama's cries kept piercing

And my conscience kept coercing

Coercing me to take time

And not to take the clock of the wall

Coercing me to count my tongue with my teeth

And not to announce, my teeth were 32

I wanted to go home

Sleeping as a child, on my mouka foam

I wanted to hear the birds singing

I wanted to see their feathers dangling

I wanted to see the leaves rustling

I wanted to behold mother nature bustling

I wanted to go home

Where I always ate my lovely pome

Staring at Mama's beaming face

Smiling, like her son just scored a brace

Cooking my favorite soup

Smiling, like we planned a hunger coup

But this was mere wish

I thought as I lay on my bed in anguish

Doctor said I had to remain bedridden

And suddenly I became sad ridden

Rivers shouldn't flow in reverse

Yeah, that's the law of the universe

I know the regrets are diverse

But I still wish these memories could disperse

I'm finally discharged after a year

I'm so sad I wish I could disappear

But for the first time, I see the Godlike surgeon

And like an Ignition, my hope jerked back to life.

God chaser
