Battle Scars

I wear them
for I must
upon my flesh
to dust

Wear them I do
not in arrogance
that I do nor
in shame

Formidable opponent
it is that from such
like of said of all
must wear the scars

Impressed by
the out ward
appearances
of such

Multiply by a hundred
inside many lives
have so touched
onto me their scars
I do wear

Getting back unto there
hard path to follow path
often wide
all paths should
be narrow indeed

Some thing other
than I can't describe

Seeing things
ought nought
run from them not
necromancer am not
yet they all come
my way to them...Unto you answer that

There is something so intriging(sic) about how you handle this message, with the word orders you've chosen...it is refreshing! You take a 'could have been trite' subject and turn it into something new with this word order. Now, that's poetry! ! ! Excellent! ! xxElysabeth

worded well, I think we all have our fair share of battle scars
