I am Arsona

i stand in shame in the hall of my ancestors
their pictures hanging proudly on the wall
that i know i will never be on
they all held their weapons high
wearing their dull expressions

Marituss the first
Ardon the great
Bravaill the strong
Ferue the brave
Gardoneu the protector
Seifva the first gaurdian

as i saw the names mounted on plaques
i was suddenly upset
by my selfish actions i cost the people
i love more than i can repay
many have lost their homes, their lives,
loved ones and land
and yet i have only gained from this

surely this cannot be true
surely god would not award me for this
for taking a comment and creating a war
surely god has seen worse of me

and yet my Father comes and laughs
he drinks and smiles at me and says
‘thankyou for your efforts, princess.’
this must be a lie
and yet during dinner, crowds of people gather
saying things like ‘well done’ and ‘good effort’
i don’t deserve the praise

and even during festivals, i am the guest of honor
for beginning the time when the sun did not rise?
i cannot bare to be praised any longer
so with my last words i bid you all a good life
for mine has ended

the guilt is too much for my small heart

your’s truely,

I am Arsona
