A Beautiful Death

A Beautiful Death

A Poem by lashane cooray

A clash of steel on steel,

The flight of an arrow, barbed with death,

A cry of a man, as broadsword pierces flesh,

All the glorious drama, of a Spartan battle to the end!


‘Blood and Gore’, the saga continues,

Repeated through the ages,

As steady as the change of Seasons,

As cold as the frost of a winter past.


Through the carnage, one would rise,

Whose wisdom surpasses, the test of time,

Glorious and honourable, a beautiful death truly is,

But all the more righteous, would precious Life forever be!
