The King and the Emperor (Samuel Jones- Bastrop, LA)


  • "The King and the Emperor"
    Tracking sand
    From a distant land,
    The Emperor has appeared.
    This magnificent man
    Extended his hand,
    Hoping the King would come near.
    "This heart is well fed."
    The King then read
    As his eyebrows began to rise.
    "What needs repair
    In a heart so rare?"
    Toward the Emperor he glides.
    "I am the King."
    The Monarch declared
    Accepting the Emperor's hand.
    As he deeply stared
    Into his heart--
    Eyes flanked by rose strands.
    "I look into the hearts of men,
    Women, nations, and tribes.
    Whatever be your heart's desire
    I am sure to surmise."
    "You do not know what it is I need!"
    The Emperor replied as a taunt.
    He softened,
    "It is too protected for most to perceive:
    It is your heart that I want."

When I have thought about all of the ways to make the hurt stop. When I am tired of putting on my strong face for others to see. When I am tired of the tears welling up, filling already soggy eyes. When I am tired of the tears, tears that roll non-stop over my cheeks. When I don't want to hurt the ones that I love the most. When it seems like those who are supposed to love me don't get who I am. When no one has any idea of the pain my smile hides. When I am worried about being forever labeled by others. When I am the one that everyone counts on for strength. When I never show any weak…
