Treasure Island

The Silent Sword

(April 2,1997)

I Am the Few


As I carry this burden,
I see myself alone,
In the dark,
A pillar of light atop my shoulders.
They feel helpless,
Unable to answer my questions,
Forced to watch me bear it
On my own.
I am the few.

As they carry this burden,
They see themselves alone,
In the dark,
A pillar of light atop their shoulders.
I feel helpless,
Unable to answer their questions,
Forced to watch them bear it
On their own.
I am the many.
