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 Helen

I'm drawn to blogging as a way to share ideas and consider what makes us who we are. Whether it's in our working life or our creativity, expression is a means to connect.
