I That Once In Youth Thought To Be A God

I That Once In Youth Thought To Be A God I that once in youth thought to be a god trampled many on darker path I trod until that path's fruits tore me asunder cast away all my forbidden plunder. In despair, I again sought the true right Soul's repair, treasure given divine Light. I that once so begged, new morns to eat delicious moments to sweet delights meet day's path with love and its romantic winds slave to passion and all that it portends In haste, rush that mysterious unknown thereby wrecking all, birthing heart of stone. I that once sought all greed and lusts demand blinded warrior in a devouring land ignoring pains, poisons and gushing bloods ever seeking more and more- treasure floods. In disarray, lost as a dying rat for on indifference I had grown fat! I that once found treasure so deep and true such beauty as never again I knew a gem beyond most mortal's blinded sight blessing which made lonely heart and soul bright. In fear, I placed her in cold iron chains until all that was left was sad remains. I that once in youth thought to be a god trampled many on darker path I trod until that path's fruits tore me asunder cast away all my forbidden plunder. In despair, I again sought the true right Soul's repair, treasure given divine Light. Robert J.
