Treasure Island

Battle Scars


I wear them
for I must
upon my flesh
to dust

Wear them I do
not in arrogance
that I do nor
in shame

Formidable opponent
it is that from such
like of said of all
must wear the scars

Impressed by
the out ward
appearances
of such

Multiply by a hundred
inside many lives
have so touched
onto me their scars
I do wear

Getting back unto there
hard path to follow path
often wide
all paths should
be narrow indeed

Some thing other
than I can't describe

Seeing things
ought nought
run from them not
necromancer am not
yet they all come
my way to them...Unto you answer that

To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
