N is for Nobleman

N is for Nobleman

A Poem by David

 

My dear friends,

I have gathered you all here,

for one simple and solid reason,

to tell you that you are my fallen heirs.

In a summation of sorts,

my legacy was to be passed to you,

one which required much patience,

the patience I have kept losing over time.

 

When in the past I walked among you,

recieved were stares and chuckles,

yet in return I gave only a nod and a smile,

wondering if I was still doing the right thing.

Forgotten to me were the ways of new times,

where it is accepted and welcomed,

that you shove your way past everyone,

oblivious to the saddened faces left upon them.

 

I once would take a bullet for any man,

suddenly finding that I retract that statement,

wishing and hoping that no one heard it,

so as not to lead them into a false security.

Some people may be renouncing their ways,

though it is too late,

it all falls upon deaf ears now,

you have doomed yourself for a final time.

 

Too long have I suffered for all of you,

spilling my blood for the women,

spreading my ashes for the children,

starving myself for the poor and the meek.

My name was denounced three times and more,

it took three days for me to build courage enough to come back,

I am so much more than you give credit for,

now your credit has run out and I am here to collect the debt.

 

Everything you have is what I gave to you,

but I got nothing in return,

thus bringing an end to everything,

hopefully you enjoyed playing the game for a while.

No more Mr. Nice Guy,

no more charity given by me or slander taken from you,

I will no longer be the pure and holy one,

I will no longer be your polite and merciful nobleman.

Very interesting - I feel like over time your writing style has gone from using a lot of sensory details that create a very detailed picture to more of a story-telling vibe. I like both personally - I was just noticing. But I think it would be really cool if somehow you combined the two styles - just a thought. Have a nice day :P
