The Silent King - Poem by Patricia Etienne

For I have no place in this world.
I am of what's been said.
My father in spirit
The past is gone,
and what's done is done
shall stay unchanged.
Hamlet is worn for different causes.
For I have worn mine to
recreate the façade of the world.
For all silent hearts to speak out loud
For hunger to end
For what is hazy to be transparent.
My blood stained on the cross.
For you to be at free will
For you to have everlasting life
I accomplished my perfect task,
and for you to cherish.
My sword and shield,
shall be used for your protection
from all evil rants,
and when the roads unpaved and bumpy.
I am the silent king.
My chariot shall carry you through.
For there is no calamity
without a redeeming grace.
