Purple's Platitudes

nothing but words …


11 January 2014



“There are many paths to redemption, not all of them peaceful.”

 ( … from  Solomon Kane)



It’s those inner battles that no one sees,

not flesh and blood that gets the best of me.


It’s the voices waging war in my mind,

I seek redemption, peace I cannot find.


The past murmurs words I cannot ignore,

truth in shadows, can balance be restored?


The questions I ask, the answers I seek,

this journey I take is not for the weak.


A holy crusade, each battle within,

I can’t tell when I lose, or if I win.


But fight on I must, persevere I will,

not for glory or gain, but self fulfilled.
