Merely Another Worldly King

He was
merely another
worldly
King.

Chasing
power
wealth
and fame.

Legions
obeyed
his every
whim.

Yet he
was unable
to master
even himself.

His coffers
overflowed
with ill gotten
gains.

Yet he
would never
have
enough.

His name
was known
by many
lips.

Yet he
was a stranger
to his
very soul.

Just another
worldly King
chasing fleeting
power, wealth and fame.

Renunciation Beckons

Renunciation
beckons the
inward turning
of my soul.

Gathering
time and attention
scattered and
stolen by men.

That both
may once more
be turned
godward.

I have labored
too long
in the kingdom
of men.

Served
in too many
futile
crusades.

I want
no glory
they may
bestow.

No wealth
nor power
that I may
claim.

I seek only
union with god
and the kingdom
within.
