Taking Back the Crown | #songsoflife prompt 1

May 30, 2020


You could die
And my people would rejoice
My nation, my homeland
The throne you sit on
The throne you stole
Would display your lifeless body
Slumped against it
And there would be cheering in the streets of my home
I will be the savior, the hero-- 
No, not the hero
The legend
I've worked the skin off my back
I've perfected my finishing blow
I've taken off my hat to make room for the crown
I've come so far
I'm so close 
I can taste it
Welcome to the end, King of Saya
You're about to die
Your dynasty decapitated
Your dynasty made of fools, liars, and thieves
My whole life has led up to this moment
My whole life was meant for this
My whole life is for those who died
Those who sacrificed, those who I miss
I am Cesare
I'm so much more than royal
I am the necessary evil
I am the one who will bring peace
I am the one who holds your sorry life in my hands
I am the one holding you at the edge of this wall
The one who will end you
To put an end to the suffering
My people's suffering
Are you scared?
I can only imagine how that feels
Once you die
I will be at peace 
Won't I?
Once I kill you
I will be satisfied
After all, this is why I'm alive
I am alive when I should've died!
Why why why
Their bodies lay lifeless on still dirt
Those who were murdered
Thrown off cliffs
Drowned in rivers
Stabbed in the back
Just to protect me
All while I keep breathing
I keep living
Because I am supposed to overthrow you
Dispose you
And I will gladly do the deed
I will avenge them
And watch you bleed
If you didn't know, by now
I see the crown on your head
And it's mine
And I see what's mine and take it
My whole life has led up to this moment
My whole life was meant for this
This is for my people
This is for ME
They are gone
But I still live on
Their bodies burned in the blaze
But I was snatched from the fire
Perhaps when your body is still
Still as my heart
Cold as my blood
I will finally smile
I will finally have peace

This is based on a story I'm brainstorming, and written while listening to "Emperor's New Clothes" by Panic! at the Disco (I sneaked in some lyrics)
Cesare has issues guys.

    Wow, that got dark. And again with the second person! You really nail that, I’ll have to try that out sometime.
    Also, it’s a little unsettling how you come up with such dark characters, but it’s also amazing to read XD. I also like how you don’t tell the whole story, so it’s kinda shrouded in mystery, which makes a cool effect.
    And yeah, I’m glad ya Christian girls can stick together.

    This is one of those revolts (if it actually happens, but not if the narrator fails) where one ruler/group of rulers overthrows another, and people are happy, but it just turns into another dynasty like the previous one.

    (Not related) I couldn't find your piece "Three is a Magic Number." Can you give me the link?

    OUTSTANDING! You have a great sense of emotion that you thrust onto the reader through your dark language, using words like ‘cold’, ‘decapitated’ and ‘murdered’. I also love how the whole piece is a run-on poem representing firing up of the speaker’s anger towards the king, all emotion and instinct taking over him, rather than rationality, an impulse to protect the people.
