One quick kick, and down I go.
Tumbling further and further away from
My reaching hands give up,
as I enter free-fall.
As light becomes dark,
I notice a change.
Why did you drop me?
Why didn't you catch me?
As I see your gates close on me,
I accept a change.
A fall into nothingness
a flight into the unknown.
Perhaps a flight that will
With a loud crash, I hit
I feel a cold I had only ever tasted in shivers.
Covered in the snow of the deep,
The ice supports me as I stand and look up
The tears I cried freeze into a crowned
mask resting on my face.
Tears I'll never shed again.
As I look up at you for the last time,
I embrace the change.
The sorrow-filled grimace of a child
the confident cackle of a King.
