The Muse made me do it …
The Ghost of a Thousand Lives
Where is the crown that makes you king?
Where is the sword that shines of courage?
Where is the stare that froze a thousand fires?
Where is the fire that melts an iceberg heart?
Where have you gone, the eyes cannot see,
If not but a speck of the brave, nor a sunshine ray,
In the depths of the soul, the hero is lost,
All that remains … the ghost of a thousand lives.
