Crown of Thorns

Down the years we don
Our crown of thorns
And bleed our dreams
On our life’s brittle page

Make our prayers to gods
Give our sacrifice
As though bargaining can make
Us rule this weary stage

Each year we find anew
A fresh perspective born
To don once more
This crown of thorns
Find brighter stars
To wish upon
Until we are gone
Until we are gone

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.
