Shame as the weight of your sins
A burden that pins the knees aground
Slumping below dimmed stars
The clouded skies still all that moves
Birthing a muteness that pierces the earth
What must you tell your men ?
A load you carry deservingly
Blames you must honour
In battle so bloody and raw
Your shield you laid down
Arrows shot from behind as you gazed into the twinkles in the eyes of man
Brightened smiles were no white flags
Now you stand wasted as they float on stained soils
The remains of an undignified wretch
A broken soul you rose from the ashes of might
Naked you stand before those clothed in hidden sin
How must you look to your reflection as you wash down the stains of your misdeed ?
The lakes, they frown upon your gaze
Your presence they shun for that which you cleanse through them unearthed a darkness.
