all conquest folded, those legends
never told your full glory
to tame the beast you had to
step into his cage
you passed their limits but
you’re only ornery&bored
and at odyssey’s end there is
no peace in your life
wasn’t that what they told you was wrong
the road is still yours but whether to
forge ahead or go back
isn’t the only choice
the sky can’t hold on to lightning
without faith, the dead gods still reign
what love have you won, the crone sinks
like a stone
and the maiden’s rise will only
be cut down in the Fall
