Can’t contain it


I am not sovereign

Without a chance to say no


Trials, suffering, bad news

You’re going to allow

The dam to be breached

And quite a lot this year


I’ve never been promised a fortress

I’m not the sequestered princess

In this life

I’m the knight with flayed armor


So instead of praying for no dragon’s breath

Instead I pray for time

Give me the meadows, hours of joy

Then do what you will, my King


Give me time to polish my armor

Give me time to prepare with sleep

Hold back the droplets when my plans are precious

Still I submit on bended knee

I want to hear from you!
