Back to Lost

Looks at the roads been travelled
     every morn when he awakes,
Smiles at his few glories
     and sheds tears for his mistakes.
Can feel the ancient breezes
     that have long since passed this way,
Their echoes are still ringing 
     through the sins for which he’ll pay.
Been forced into the valleys,
     his journeys kept to the dark,
The guiding light's holding hope
     in nothing more than a spark.
Prayers remain unrecognized
     deep in shadows of his gloom,
The mirror keeps his secret
     underneath a pale costume.
He’s become but a number
     on a faded page long creased,
And hung up like memories
     in the bellies of the priests.

    Very provocative! When you force a man not to act like a man that's what happens. Light & Love
