Message from Writer

I have found that what I put here before was very deep.
Nah...
Just wanted to say hi.
So hello.

Kingdom come.
Condemmed men, crushed enemies, followed law, oversaw wealth, prayed religion; held power
I existed
I was not a pawn, but a king
Moving in all directions, holding all 
But those steps were oh so small
Lessers did these things for me
Weight fell onto my shoulders, I no longer stood tall
I had never once helped my people

Never once had I gone to a church
Never once had I fought in a war
Never once had I been to a courtroom
Never once had I bartered in market stall

I crumbled 
I fell
No longer had I gall
And I was forced to crawl
Under my own weight
A broken mule in a stallion's clothes

Gone was the crown, gone was the throne, gone were the pieces on the chessboard 
My pride was broken
My heart was shattered
My sorrow was marrow
Upon silver platter

Kingdom come.
Viva La Vida
This is for N.'s contest.
