This competition excoriates
Friendships broken
Fallen at the feet
Of mere victory
Struggle in vain
Only one may rise
And there at his feet
All the broken dreams
And dreamers lie

This trophy is of blood
And broken bone
And promises smashed
Through cruelty

The world demands
Its heroes arise
From the darkest
Of all debris
To tell the lie

About helenvalentina

Like most people, I have a number of sides to me. The most interesting one probably emerges through my writing, hence this blog. I love to read, and also to write, and so this is a way to share both.
