Labyrinth By R. Cary


By R. Cary

A sister living in a conscious of choices

Betraying her brother of love

Giving evil its opportunity to gain

The life of one more living soul

A story we have all heard, lived

Many of us years long before

To never give in to our worst dispositions,

Our defeat of self through inward

Frustrations of conceited concern

And when we do, we fight like hell

We enter our internal labyrinth

Discovering our journey of self

Seeing the good once again

Even in evil’s realm, we find good

Turning the labyrinth of fate

Into a battle of good vs. him,

The once mighty Goblin King

Who waits and listens, to one

Fainted spirit to give him

The blood of a leach

To feast on our souls

Furthering the labyrinth

Disguising our will;

But she, just as you or I

Will not fall to the goblin’s disease

The King of dying hope and belief

Willing to give her soul

For a loved one held so dear

She enters to battle in this

Demon’s playground of hate

Encouraging inside, her soul begins

To find in this journey, human

Faith of love, defeats this Goblin

Demon twisting our thoughts

Enraging our hearts into spited

Indignity shallowing our souls,

Burying our true selves

By delivering pain of one decision;

But she does not quit

She will not fail

This princess of fate

Becomes the hero of strength

A beacon of light for us to tale

A story we can all endure

Grasping our soul, our choices weighed

You keep going until

You balance the scales

Through a conquering of our labyrinths

Good will always prevail

And Goblin Kings will always fail

As Sarah’s story is now a tale
