To set free.

Emancipation from thoughtless seed

Destiny's plead

Vanity's endless need

the Projection portrayed

the silvered dawn's delay

the Embittered lies

celebrated compromise

hell's hallowed guest

sacred rest

knowing I didn't do my best

Mortgaged soul

the broken bowl

the depth's of shallow

the mighty dead wood hollow

the tyrants dead stare

costly nightbird fare

the Pharoh's dream

river of extreme

the queen of diamonds affluent fold

headstones cold

fair-weathered friends

things I didn't know then

things I know now

things felt but not knowing how

saying goodbye

and the closing of the eye.

EMANCIPATION
