Lost


Parading myself

In shame

All along the way

Walls fell, roads collapsed

What’s left behind are

Noise and debris

Took different paths

Scoured different ways

Walked through the ashes

Brushing off the pain

Prisoner in some places

Or a king in chains

Broke the crown,

I lost myself to people,

Castle burnt to ground

Carrying the shackles, looking for the key

Forging alliances

Between heartache and greed

Lost it all, now I see

What I wanted was within me

            But whatever it is, is the truth that has to be dealt with.

              I guess 😜
              Or thank you in Latin is β€œgratias tibi” but I assume Latin is a dead language nowadays….
