Little King of Sorrows


All said and done


What have I done,
I let my mind run,
Was it selfish of me,
To indulge in some fun?
I held back the rain,
with nothing to gain,
I couldn't distinguish,
the joy from the pain.
All that denial,
I needed to file,
I dumped out my thoughts,
and sifted the pile.
Another fear tossed,
another tear crossed,
strewn all about,
some translation was lost.
The lighting was dim,
as I started to trim,
the dreams I don't need,
were stacked to the brim.
This one's for you,
all shiny and new,
this ones for him,
It's the least I can do.
Take or leave be,
I'm purging you see,
Things not forgotten,
were hindering me.
But now it's okay,
I'll pack this display
hidden from eyesight,
I'll store it away.
Light as feather.
I challenge the weather,
With loving acceptance,
I glued myself together.
Smiles in my bags,
I stretch out my legs,
No stones unturned,
I leave these white flags.
Just hoping your happy,
I'll quit being sappy,
I'm sorry for words,
and rhymes that are crappy.
Just wanted to try,
and I figured out why,
when all's said and done,
Just had to say 'Hi'.
Okay. Goodbye.: -)

And said, “I can summon a million of men
To fight for their country and Kaiser;
