Warrior Woes

You sit there in your castle all alone
Surrounded by the trinkets of the past
Sometimes a King is shackled to his throne

Sadly the days of glory did not last
You feel the heart of a warrior beat
Surrounded by the trinkets of the past

It seemed the world had been laid at your feet
Now it is your men that go to battle
You feel the heart of a warrior beat

You long once again to feel the saddle
The coursing of blood going through your veins
Now it is your men that go to battle

You are King so they say you hold the reins
You long for the adventure and the speed
The coursing of blood going through your veins

The sound of snorting from your mighty steed
You long for the adventure and the speed
You sit there in your castle all alone
Sometimes a King is shackled to his throne

    I loved this medieval themed poem of yours. What a swift turn of events to get all you ever wanted and then to end up all alone with possessions that don't mean much anymore. It's the thrill of the chase and not the actual receiving, that's part of living.

    You are right Timothy, as humans we think the end goal is the important part and it often pales to how we imagine it.

    Thanks Eileen, until I joined the soup I was unfamiliar with any forms. This place has added to my education and tool box of expression.

    Thanks Russel, I have been writing more free verse lately so I thought I should write something more structured to sharpen my tools.
