Who Reigns?

Who reigns?
My heart, the kingdom; who’s the king?
Who reigns?
Is it me or you? that thought pains.
Let me decide; why can’t I win?
You held me; now I’m lost within.
Who reigns?

Who reigns?
I am sure, I went the right way;
Who reigns?
If you hate, why love you do feign?
I may falter, yet close I’ll stay;
It’s my life, let me have my say.
Who reigns?

Who reigns?
Hope dwindles now, a strand so thin;
Who reigns?
Has all my effort been in vain?
I walk alone, but I shall win;
In my favor, the dice shall spin.
Who reigns?

Who reigns?
For long I’ve fought, this battle within;
Who reigns?
Smile a facade, masks much deep pains;
Time to end this battle I’m in,
My heart, the kingdom; who’s the king?
Who reigns?

Poetry & writing to me are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.
