Izgorath Way

There are certain times in your life when you know It's no longer a matter what you do or what you say Whatever it is or was has ceased to be. It could be love it could be death but it is gone. You must accept this, as that is the way of the Izgorath. The elders have declared that we must move on The ancients have guided the elders and they And only they know the truth. We lay our head upon the stones at night And stare up at the moons And we know because the great god Alibemus Has shown us the way The Izgorath are not a nation unto themselves But an extension of Alibemus’s will His will is that of the earth and the sky and everything That makes the wind move yet be unseen We will not as a people lie down and die We will remember the warriors and the ponies That rode into battle. Gray is not the color of our love Gray is the color of the forgotten ones. Darkness drives them from the forest and into the light And then they turn to dust. Forgive us Alibemus for we know no other way. We lay ourselves at your feet and pray that our tribe Will not cease to be. To be is all we have. To have is all we hope for. To Hope is to love. To love it the Izgorath way.

    This holds much wisdom and meaning. We must learn to accept and adapt. Lovely composition once again. Always, Laura

    Thank you Anne Lise! The color of love is secondary love is what matters. Thanks for the read and the comment. ~Kilmer
