    Spartan

    Spartan

    Cold as it passes through me
    Piercing to new found depths
    Alone I sit and bleed
    Listening to those gentle steps

    Of that pale horseman’s steed
    Waiting from this life, to be freed

    I feel the chill of death’s hand
    Yet from its grasp I will not heed
    Forcing to my feet I stand
    Before that which, other’s fleed

    One by one they fall before me
    With my sword so firmly grasped
    Herald by the warrior’s creed
    I alone am bound to complete this task

    Wondering if each breathe will be my last
    Yet, am I driven by the fallen warriors of past

    Valiantly I lift my blade
    I am not a righteous martyr
    As their lives, my brethren gave
    Failing to prevail in this pretentious slaughter

    Willing their souls, when death bade
    Their gift in history’s mind will fade

    Even as my vision blurs
    Yet more gallant dreams I harbor
    With my speech becoming slurred
    I will not call on the gods of my father

    Though I can go no farther
    Yet will I still proclaim; the victory of my Sparta.

    No more picking about the posts mister. At first I did see the literal meaning and that was all I saw, but then I looked at it closer and I could apply it to many things.
    I will be the first to comment and I like the poem.

    I reworded it slightly after I sent it to you, I am glad you like it and are able to see new things in it
