Ablaze

( a Quatern )  


I thought with faith I’d keep the light ablaze;  
There’re things about myself I tried to fix.  
The Reaper stood in black with cards it plays,  
I threw my challenge down before his tricks.  
 
There’s no way I’d give in without a fight,  
I thought with faith I’d keep the light ablaze.  
I stood my ground and showed I felt no fright,  
The Reaper’s echoed words told of my days.  
 
A feeling of resolve in my malaise  
Came to me as I set forth strong demands.  
I thought with faith I’d keep the light ablaze,  
My birthright to control the shifting sands.  
 
A grin of Reaper’s maw almost like hate,  
The figure of my death begins to raise.  
The sound of laughter finally seals my fate;  
I thought with faith I’d keep the light ablaze.
