Heavy footsteps upon my soul leave no imprint
the sword I bear is the icon of my love, a symbol of my strength.
I have fought many battles against unseen foes, suffered many wounds in my fight for love.
Tired and weary, the last ounce of energy gone, I fall down embracing my head with my hands.
Ready to give up I draw my last breath, millions of thoughts rain through my mind.
battered soul, worn body I can take no more I am the knight of history.

I look to the heavens for something, not knowing what I'll find, but find it I do. A spark lands on my flesh the heat melts its way into me. Something stirs inside me. Like a drop becomes a river, this fire becomes all consuming.

Arise I do slowly, straighteneing my back, the rain can do no more.I look, I take a deep breath and raise my sword towards the sky.

I stand alone, but I stand strong.

Then work came and made us free
What price now for a shallow piece of dignity"

La Tristesse Durera (Scream to a Sigh)
"Life has been unfaithful And it all promised so so much
I am a relic I am just a petrified cry Wheeled out once a year, a cenotaph souvenir
The applause nails down my silence
La tristesse durera
Scream to a sigh, to a sigh
I see liberals I am just a fashion accessory
People send postcards
And they all hope I'm feeling well I retreat into self-pity, it's so easy Where they patronise my misery
La tristesse durera
Scream to a sigh, to a sigh
I sold my medal
It paid a bill
It sells at market stalls Parades Milan catwalks
The sadness will never go Will never go away
Baby it's here to stay

Perhaps this spark is hope or courage.  The wise man will always follow a position of strength.   The foe will respect no other position.   James

What an excellent picture this paints in my mind.   Powerful writing. I loved it.

 Nothing can deter a poet, for he is actuated by pure love. Who can predict his comings and goings? "Thoreau"

Hurt only hurts as much as you want it too...
