Ambushed - Poem by Brandon Owens

I found a strip of land not too long ago
Happened by chance
When I was traveling along the side road
It was perfect for a home
With these hands I built it from the ground
A piece of architect straight from my soul
If only she could see this beauty
She probably wouldn't care, but would love
How everyone stopped and stared
Oh how I miss her
Life is sometimes just unfair
For so long now, it's just been me
I've been searching, but always end up alone
I had a friend once, a great man who cared a bunch
Maybe he'll come see my home, and maybe
We could have lunch
I jot the letter, went down to town
The only way was the Main Road
I got held up, left a little late
It was night, but I wasn't scared
You see, I'm strong, brave, and not too meek
But I didn't know they were waiting for me
A beggar came from a ditch
Held out his hand and said please
I'm fairly generous, so I slowed
That's when they ambushed me
I tried to flee, almost made it away unscathed
I didn't know they had bows
I was hit, but couldn't stop and galloped home
Crossed my moat, drew up the bridge
They couldn't help but leave me alone
But now I'm sick with infection, in this beautiful tomb

    When you build something with soul, it has grace and beauty!
    [A piece of architect straight from my soul
    If only she could see this beauty
    She probably wouldn't care, but would love
    How everyone stopped and stared
    Oh how I miss her] -It's a beautiful poem. Alas! Life is not always fair!
