posting

they told me from young,
they knew,
but they didn’t tell me.
they know,
they refuse to share.
i thought it was mine,
you said it was mine.

what do you think of me now?

when someone asks you,
what your brother, son, friend
does for a living.
something unaccomplished,
unnecessary.
i seem like a proud man,
but they raised me like a prince –
they wanted a king.

how do i respond to the crowd now?

i will have no sword
to slay the dragon –
i promised i would take care of you.
how can i?
did You find me unworthy?
did You find me weak?
how heavy was the sword,
that You deemed me unfit?

Oh God, help me to see Your plan. I am blind, I am weary, I am so, so lost.
