poetry

defeated beneath our feet

from thrones we hail
or is that fell
murderous corruption
found beneath the grounds
as kingdoms lie in ruins
a once great tale
where cities grew
before they fell
or is that
failed
as eyes
have always failed to see
overtaken by
what was told
selling our souls
for the next best thing
blinded by the reality
we all call sanity
although it’s far
and in between
as heartbeats echo
and halos fall to our feet
kinda like being defeated
before we return to that ground
beneath our feet
as i proclaim
i refuse to die
while i’m still able to walk
this hallow ground
