A warriors path

Running on an empty tank
Wishing he could cash in at the bank
Climbing this ladder is his last hope
Keeping his balance on this fatal slope
Past memories cross the presence
The mind falls into its absence...

Still in the unforgettable moments

Lost in the vast and gregarious images

Eyes fluttering with every passing sense

A wounded warrior taking off his bandages

Blood trickles down the seasoned chest
While a new appreciation has risen to the crest
The darkness has molded a new beam of life
A new grasp on the struggles of the strife
The voices continue to bicker inside the head
But now the soul does not follow the words said

Are you good enough to achieve your dreams?
Will you vanish when you're needed most?

I thought you were supposed to be on my team
But the dread has turned you into a ghost

Always putting blame on everybody except the man in the mirror
Look at you, in a puddle of your own broken promises

Why must you instill these thoughts that lead to my fear?
Surely it must be something you make a career

You are nothing but a speck of shit in this universe
But yet you think you are some sort of deity

I feel like I am everything that consists of a curse
But nothing more than a man of pity

The conversations that were once had
Now conceal the weapons that drove him mad
The man now has the ability to break free of the chains
Oh how he has been able to make sense of the troubled reign
The path is no longer blocked by a barricade
The aftermath results in losing the charming charade

Finally rest can be a virtue that is obtained
This spirit will not crumble in vain
The devil may be owed his due, ultimately
But on this level there is no dance really
The controller is the grip of a new king
His former self pleads for him to be forgiving
There is no room for hatred or anger
The king assures that their safety is not in danger
For today is a new day, it is a bright and glorious day
Take hold in the power that is brought by the array
The sun is shining amidst nature singing its song
Rejoice in the space around you for this where you belong
