Blood

Fumes of valor, Sins weighing all the hopes lost, Demeanor of power, craving for success whatever's the cost, Deftness of a prodigy, It carries it all, It carries everything you believe it does, It carries nothing! Judged, divided, shamed upon, It just gushes unaware of any anomalies. Its expeditious flow defines us all, The sudden spout through the veins, A constant reminder of human transience. Often sworn to promises which are never kept, It's limitless power put to a constant test. Wasted in this worldly chaos, celebrated by a victory, A mere symbol it remains, Taken for granted, Life's elixir unglorified.
