Ascend - Poem by Dillon Gay

Bathing a new trophy
Not shining but illuminating
All that any could see

Connecting all

That ever attempts to bind
Leaving lost life behind
And seeking reconciliation
Pity to those not traveled here

Depriving a conscious
A being of higher divinity
If such a Highness deserves assumption

A separation of wills

A sacrifice of ego
The offer of unity
One’s crushing of virtue

One dimension of serenity
Another of chaos
All the same

A new world forged
But not without toll
Exhausting work of soul

And with intangibility

Tampered, but indestructible
If defenses are set into place
Protection comes with a price

With no absolute value
Attempts can be made
But it just remains merely said

No desire to win
Only to draw
Then put down the shield
And topple the wall

Piece by piece
The void will fill
Until the day we decease
We, at our own throne, will kneel
