The well of death came calling,
and all but one plunged deep,
the nights long and weary,
now ended with years of sleep.

He opened his eyes, the light was blinding,
he looked around, on a world unchanged.

He stood up tall, and the shadow behind him,
felt small, defeated, and a little ashamed.

The walk was long, he walked along,
the hands that tied him, he proved them wrong.

Once love united his creeds and deeds,
now a path of glory, lay free from weeds,
he ran to the light,
he ran all days, he ran all nights.

They spoke his name for ages to come,
he heard them then, he heard each one,
this time he knew he will not fail,
they lost him once, he always won.

His name was echoed in his fate,
They chose to call him …
Alexander the Great.
