The Remnant - Poem by Abhimanyu Raman

I am the remnant
Of wars fought and lost
For reasons, that I know not
I remain, the others have perished
Partners in my sin, yet alone am I
Facing the reaper’s scythe
Neither hope nor pain do I feel
Nor fear nor remorse
I am dead to emotion
I am the remnant

I have faced a thousand enemies,
I have had a thousand friends
None remain as I do, to witness
The end of an age, an era as no other
Testimony to the final decadence of man

Only I remain,
Solitary witness to the inevitable
I am the remnant
