before the game commenced
We were unequal

your coffin was light
for the others bore the weight
of the bereavement

Namibian Window

Avoid vanity

Live in the shadow of self

Let others shine

Namibian Window

Observe my beauty
I offer it without cost
To my priceless self

cruel strengths

are harvested in dark souls

by willing minds

Namibian Window

Awoken dragon

Ignites the furnace within

Chains evaporate

Tanka

A lifetime ago

Everything was so different

Yet I am the same
