diminished seventh

a silent figure sits alone
the ruins of his shattered throne
his hands gracing all he can own
and no one there to watch him.

he strikes a chord and heaves a sigh
and starts to play that famous lie
conceived by those now gods on high
who never cared to watch him.

“No more of this,” he starts to say
but even still his fingers play
a room of spirits start to sway
they blindly cannot watch him.

the song moves on from verse to verse
he protests more, his speech grows terse
he looks around to find his hearse
who ever could have watched him?

shattered, he leaves his soul behind
a man now to his fate resigned
he crosses the border of his mind
with no one there to watch him.

    Doesn’t matter if you’re not watched
    that’s not the important thing to fight
    what you need to fight for, is your soul
    not letting it behind & shine with light.

    It’s easier to resign when we are tired
    beat down, in pain, grief and sadness
    but we have a spirit to win vs anything
    to smile with joy and live with gladness.
