Pale Horseman
I am known by many names,
Reviled by many more,
I meet my clients by accident,
Old age, sickness, and war.
Many call to me,
Not knowing what they ask,
While others pray to me in secret,
For heavy can be their mask.
There are many who curse my name,
Mourning what it is they lost,
They indulge in the pleasures of life,
While ignorant of the cost.
I am forever in the shadows,
Cursed to hide from the light,
For there are few who celebrate,
Those who come for them at night.
It is my purpose, my job,
As it is my plight to be,
For I am the pale horseman,
When will my soul be set free?
Author's Notes:
My 1st attempt at writing in over a decade.
