The Great Fall

Based in part on The Great Wall movie…

Out of the Looking Glass/Into the Madness - Too Much Time On Our Hands

The Great Fall
by Michael Romani

There is that nameless order
There on every life's border
There are changes to behold
And with them, new stories to be told

Though the greatest wall might crumble
And a million men may fall and tumble
We must find our way to truly trust
That is the one thing that we must

I find myself nearing the point of peace
Where from this life I readily release
All hopes of ever being the more
Finding my comfort instead as one who is poor

A thousand paper lanterns release into the sky
Like poetry that provides grace as men cry
There will be tales to come of this day
This is my truth as wiser men are heard to say

To my enemies, I wish you good cheer
For the worse that you can do to me... I do not fear
I sought only to defend my children
And this father's love, you will never end
