King if all men

by Sibaroni

l am king
of all men
but I am afraid
I am afraid

My intellect soars above you
but I cannot touch you
You exist beyond me.

A fragmented life
Incomplete
I don’t compute

I am  king
of all men
but I am afraid
I am afraid

A brilliance dimmed
A spectre chained
Hidden in plain view

one day I may rise
more likely I’ll  fall
amongst the shadow

I am king
of all men
but I am afraid
I am afraid

I just cannot fight
Anymore
Without crying

Without dying inside

I am king
of all men
but I am afraid

If I could be king
just for the day
then there’d be no pain

As we’re all the same.
