A Young Man

A young man, I was

When I kneeled down in front of the temple, head down, I paused.

Tears of blood I cried

For I was denied

The privilege of a smile

And pushed into exile.

I open my hands and looked up above

Father, why must I suffer? Why can’t I find love?”

Desperate for a response I fell to the floor

And I crawled, I, an empty corpse.

The sky opened and a whisper from above come down

”Get up, my son, you are a warrior and warriors don’t kneel down,

Soon enough, you will know the meaning of all your suffering and why you needed to drown.”

I still cry tears of blood

But now I hold hope

Because the suffering will cleanse my soul

And soon enough, I will master self-control.

look around!
