Stumbled upon a beauty.

I was strumming the guitar to Metallica’s Mama Said, when I decided to sing along and only then I realized how beautiful some of the lines from the lyrics were. I’ve got an exam this week and to chance upon a beauty hidden after so many years humming to that song was…amazing. My mind is at peace and I feel ready to work harder for my dreams and those of hers.

Enjoy, the bolded lines were the ones which made me paused to take in the serenity they offered.

Metallica- Mama said

1, 2, 3, 4, 1, 2

Mama, she has taught me well
Told me when I was young
Son, your life’s an open book
Don’t close it ‘fore it’s done

The brightest flame burns quickest
Is what I heard her say
A son’s heart’s owned to mother
But I must find my way

Let my heart go
Let your son grow
Mama, let my heart go
Or let this heart be still, yeah still

Rebel, my new last name
Wild blood in my veins
Apron strings around my neck
The mark that still remains

Left home at an early age
Of what I heard was wrong
I never asked forgiveness
But what is said is done

Let my heart go
Let your son grow
Mama, let my heart go
Or let this heart be still

Never I ask you
But never I gave
But you gave me your emptiness
I now take to my grave

Never I ask of you
But never I gave
But you gave me your emptiness
I now take to my grave
So let this heart be still

Mama, now I’m coming home
I’m not all you wished of me
But a mother’s love for her son
Unspoken, help me be

Yeah, I took your love for granted
And all the things you said to me, yeah
I need your arms to welcome me
But a cold stone’s all I see

Let my heart go
Let your son grow
Mama, let my heart go
Or let this heart be still

Let my heart go
Mama, let my heart go
You never let my heart go
So let this heart be still, ohh

Never I ask you
But never I gave
But you gave me your emptiness
I now take to my grave

Never I ask of you
But never I gave
But you gave me your emptiness
I now take to my grave
So let this heart be still…

Love,

Anwar

    Wa, on a serious note! I guess this song says a lot but let me tell you this. Parents, to be more exact, mothers, do not reprimand this children, so dont get mislead when you get the cold treatment. Who are u/me to judge them? They merely meant to stop their children from hurting themselves more or repeating the same mistakes. Sometimes their ways of doing it is harsh, sometimes subtle, just dont be mistaken coz a mother’s love is unconditional.
