There was a boy – Heedless and free,
Wandered about without a care,
Consumed by life was he;
Oblivious to darkness and despair.
Although stubborn and never hesitant to put up a fight,
His idea of Good and Bad was always in Black and White;
No matter what, he never did stray
From the white, onto the Grey.
There was a girl – Confused and Weak,
With a focused and brave exterior;
Inside she was lost and bleak,
Insecure and consumed by fear.
Although she tried to be strong,
Her sense of morality was all wrong;
Someone needed to help her set her priorities straight,
And for that someone she had to wait…
Fate decided it was time to come into play,
And She planned and plotted and made their lives entwine.
It didn’t just happen one fine day,
It happened slowly and gradually without any sign.
At first it was just two people getting to know each other;
Nobody really thought it would go any further…
But the fall began to get steeper
And they began drowning in it deeper and deeper.
It started off fresh and fierce
Their lives were being woven together,
He built her a safety net and wiped away her tears,
He was her shade in stormy weather.
But she was mindless and easily swayed
By all the demons that came her way;
Not once did she think of all the ways she made him hurt,
Not once did she try to brush off the dirt.
She dived into a whirlpool of sin,
Yet he always gave her the benefit of doubt;
She never flinched; she never let him in,
And soon a cold war between them broke out.
Refusing to reconcile with him, she walked away;
But he never believed that she didn’t want to stay;
He never understood how she could let him go this easy,
Thinking of life without her made him queasy.
So he made a decision to win her back,
In deed a decision tremendously brave,
For he knew she was a hard nut to crack,
Little did he know how long a path this decision would pave.
Slowly and gradually he opened her eyes,
Slowly and gradually he watched each demon inside her die.
The girl was brought to a world which to her was unknown;
A place where she would never be alone;
For he always stood there by her side,
His words and thoughts lingered on her mind.
Light filled her life; true bliss came her way,
It was something no one could ever take away.
He stood there watching, his eyes filled with pride,
At this new girl he created with all his patience and love,
She knew that there was no one like him she could find,
He was made for her, sent to her from above.
He took her by the arm and helped her leave behind the mess she made,
And this time when the demons came to her, she never swayed.
Hand in hand they walked towards a better tomorrow,
Setting foot away from chaos, betrayal and sorrow.
There is a boy – Cautious but still free,
Bent, but not broken is he.
Fate once gave him a rough blow,
But he got back on his feet and he’s good to go.
Now there is a girl – Focused and strong,
Carefully staying away from the wrong;
No longer is she bleak and subdued;
For he is her hero and she is rescued.
