The Way The Cards Fall.

One day
all your kingdom
will burn to the ground
and you will ask God
"why me?"
"what have I done
to deserve this?"
and in response
you will hear
the simple scraping scythe
of the wind
as it carries the ash away
to a new kingdom
and bears fertile soil
for someone else.

  2. You capture through words, a feeling I have felt quite deeply many times in my life. An excellent point, wrapped in perfect descriptions.
