Life has taken it’s course, leaving me dying in pain
Although I know I cannot fade, the sting still remains

The sting of my enemy, as he conquers my domain
The thought of ways forgotten, as they’re left behind in vain

For the ideals I hold true, and the knowledge I’ve obtained
Will do no good to others who would rather have wealth than wisdom

And many throughout time have suffered my fate
And they gaze into me, as I lie at death’s gate

It does no good to curse him, for my enemy is part of me
and it does no good to hate him, that will never set me free

So all I can do is accept it, while this moment still remains
So I may reflect on all I’ve lived as I drift beyond all pains
