A Soldier's Cry

A soldier’s cry of the kings Bleeding still from his heart Opened by what he brings During the war impart Straightened by the narrow Encased by fear’s early plunge The soldier fight’s with arrows Daring any man to lunge Secretly over his eyes Both corroded by life’s gross All around him the despised Another sight given close A king he will become After they see his true self Never will he be lonesome An image onto oneself Power of this immense mind Common thoughts brought on through He aligned, surely resigned Meandering softly into The offer of knighthood Has been left cast aside So he would be what he should King of the land from inside
