THRENODY

I dreamt I saw you among the dozen

Standing above the threshold of holy realms

Like a lost wanderer in foreign land

To seek divided thoughts to move

Held you a piece in thirty piece of silver

Of the price of the elders.

Poignant, though your heart blinked unknowingly

Between Scylla and Charybdis

And so you took council upon him.

Between now and then, and hither and thither

Upon which the master was sell down the river

By you whom I saw in my dream.

Now standing beyond the threshold of destruction

But do not shed white tears now

Do not shed them now as men do

Into our opening hearts.

Neither thorn of crowns into our hands

Nor blood happiness it seems

For we live as the days passed as whited sepulcher.

What's the essence of caring if you can't make a difference, just like eggs, we must pass through different stages to realise our chances

Fate is what happens
When the chicks break and crack
From inside to life.
