A Man Is Born

Today was a big day for the kid

He learned the importance of giving

Of giving while being fully aware

that he will get nothing in return

He gave love

He received hate

He gave certainty

He received uncertainty

He gave truth

He received lies

He gave his flame and it was washed down

He cares not though

As for once in his life

He felt true love

For once in his life

He knew he was true

and now,

Engulfed by the flames of his spirit

the kid lies dead.

Noone cried for him though

Only the men who had nothing to give him
