Beholden - 2010/11/01

Tomorrow is coming yet here I am
Unwillingly to participate at all
No more or no less damned

Go I cannot so here I shall stay
While this precious world leaves
Their false idols to play

Scavenging my dreams of eras past
Ransacking rubble for the truth
Clearly unable to outlast

Great swaths of fury hover above
Readying a torrent at any moment
Lacking but a violent shove

So conquerers of the uncivilized
Built homes on the bloody fields
A vicious cycle unrealized

Tomorrow we shall speak out loud
Emboldening one of many traitors
Of whom no one can be proud

With steel in my voice I respond
That I reject overtures of fools
Whose word is not their bond
