"Non ducor, duco.” (I am not lead, I lead) So now I know....
Now I choose to speak to thee
as you’ve adjured to speak to me
We sit as equals, face to face
allow our intents to interlace .
Now I see no fear in thee
as you stand in front of me.
For darkness past you calculate,
what shields you now lies in hate.
This face you wear for purpose sake
works not on me make no mistake.
So when I choose to question thee
you'll fool me not with dishonesty.
I ask you if you'll pardon me,
for all those nights of agony.
The times when you would hold the knife
wishing you could end your life.
“I’ll pardon you for changing me
into the person others see.
For all the times you willed me pain,
now we've reached a waiting game.
My pardon comes with one condition,
that is you aid me in my mission.
If this is all life has in store for me
put me out of my misery.”
In spite of every whip and blow
you underwent and still you grow.
Most who shared in your afflictions
surrendered to their demonic addictions.
Yet you i surveilled with great apprehension
for there were moments of eager tension;
in vain i believed you might give in
but brave you are, as was Anne Boleyn
If people talk, be it false or true,
It’s only because they envy you.
One who laughs, attracts attention
Will conjure up man’s condescension.
If insecure folk try to tar your name
Its merely because they’re tiresome and plain.
Remember this will never cease to be
man’s manifestation of pure jealously.
In public they try to bring you down
but devoid of friends they'd simply drown.
You never needed this cowards game
you're aware of the power in your name.
I’ll crush those who use words to harm you
For I despise the weak, it is you I value
If it be my decree to help you fight
don’t you dare give up your might
For once I put my pride in you-
show weakness and i’ll take from you.
The soul many believe its theirs to keep
even when they barter it dirty cheap.
I repeat dare not fail me now
Let our game begin right here and now.
