Troy - Poem by maria sudibyo

She thought it is real love
But she also seeks for freedom
He thought it is a gift of god
But it is also a hidden curse
They thought it's only a matter of heart
But it becomes a fate of the country

He wants his love back
But actually it is his wounded pride
He excuses it as a battle of honor
But it is actually a war of greed
They thought it is a fair consequence
They didn't count the sacrifice the others should make

Why for love they all could hate
Why for life they all could hurt

He doesn't care about love
All he wants is the glory
He thought it is to fulfill the pledge
Now all he yearns is to go home
They thought it is a simple mission
But actually it forces them to question their loyalty

He thought it is love worth to protect
Even though it costs his life
He always expected to be a great ruler for his kingdom
But he could put it aside and be a good father 
They thought it's a part of their duty
But it also a choice of their destiny

Why hero should raise from tragedy
Why lover should bloom from enemy

He thought that love is courage
He wants to prove it by becoming a warrior 
He acts like he is a respectable ally
Though he feels like walking on the tip of the sword
They thought they have control for what they doing
But in the end of the day what they got

She has a warning about love
But no one would ever listen to her
She has long be abandoned
Now she would get her revenge
They thought they are too weak to involve with their future
Now they'll struggle with their own power

Why men leave only to fight
Why women left only to pray

When the divine lead their mortal player
And human trapped in their desire 
The legend would be born
And the myth would be written
