A complex burden

Thrust upon me

Holding onto those who've fallen

Guiding those who cannot see

Fighting for the defenseless

Shouting for the silent

Orders for the choiceless

A weight most violent

Crushing with such force

Breaking day by day

All their discourse

Shattering before my way

Being built by their love

Living out my days alone

Merely a light to guide from above

Until the days my true form shown
