I walked through the portal
leaving sadness, sorrow and grief behind.
My footprints were muddy,
and chains dragging behind me.
I left to find new purpose and freedom,
the old world of which could offer me none.
Every man that returned was a changed man,
a freed man set on a new path of greatness.
Now that man would be me,
who would find extraordinary power.
Even now I can feel my shoes being cleansed,
the chains feeling a little bit lighter around me.
Oh, what glory is this that I've found,
this glorious thing that has shaped me!
A changed man am I,
finally free from the bounds of confinement.
But, wait! What's this, this feeling that I feel,
filling me with **** and pulling me closer?
Something I have never heard of or seen,
a thing unforeseen by anything I know.
Hark! He knocks unceasingly on my door,
with the voice of a newborn and the staff of a man.
I am drowning in want for this,
yet this new world is filled with it.
When I let him in he comes with a howl,
and bounds me with new chains made of strong steel.
I am captured once more in this illusion of perfection,
too naive to see the truth of the dirt.
My shoes are again muddy,
but with the dirt of this society instead of that one.
The chains trap me and I am changed,
a ***** forever chasing what I can never have.
Something I came up. Hopefully it's good!
