The air of forgiveness is around me

What I eat does not feed

Fulfilled in a destiny I wasn’t prepared for.

Darkness filled my life today

Left empty spaces in my essence

Filled only with the greed of humanity

Left once for the beat of a heart

But not for the loss of my inheritance.

Sapphires now adorn an empire

I wasn’t ready to build.

Not ready for the land to swallow me

Yet death never waits

Even for darkness.
