Living on Your KneesWar has swift feet, it's agents have quick minds. And soon, emissaries have stated their ultimatum before the throne.Living on Your Knees by IRideAMagicalLadle
The Emperor is standing before his throne, his face stern with anger, as he looks upon these men shouting his defiance "Better to die on one's feet, then live on your knees!"
I raise my eyes from the bottom platform, my knees calloused, a smile playing my face.
I am a slave. Bred into it, born unto it. I know no other view then the one from my knees. From on one's knees many things are seen differently, perhaps even how they truly are. When one is not taken with the Sun in the sky, one can view what is happening on the ground underfoot.
And, is this not also the view shared by both the servant and the wise man? Standing, one can see many ways men are treated. Kneeling, one sees even more.
The smile still plays upon my face as I turn to look up at the Empero
PowerA little girl asked me "What is power?" I was admittedly too surprised to answer. Yet when I got over my surprise I found that I couldn't explain power much more than 'The ability to make decisions that supersede everyone else's' (A generic definition of power, admittedly absolute power, but power all the same). I put some thought into it and came up with this little poem.Power by ClassJester
It is no more than the size of a flower.
And yet it weighs more than six large towers.
It is as brittle as shale.
And yet it can hurt as much as mini van hail.
It is used in the perception of good or evil.
And yet it burrows into you like the weevil.
It is only for the strong, this power.
And yet you have all that use it in this hour.
Smaller than a flower, yet heavier than six towers.
How can it hurt like mini van hail and be more brittle than shale?
Why is it used for good or evil; how come it corrupts like the weevil?
Hiya! Thank you for coming this far and braving who knows what to reach this even more scarier place! I hope to blow your thoughts off, please enjoy your stay. Oh, and please beware of dog. The cat's not to be trusted either.
Now for a little bit of info you probably don't need to know about me.....
I started taking request! So if you have one, I'll probably do it.
I like this emote, it will probably be over-used on my page.
I love writing! I also like drawing a fairly good deal.
If I gave you a Llama, it is because mine are keeping me awake at night with their gossip.
Personal Qoute: "That was a deliberate attempt on my sanity!!!"
Likes: chocolate, sunshine, fog/mist, music, being home alone, to think the best of people.
Dislikes: rudeness, garbage, cleaning up messes, running away from scary things (I perfer to chase them instead)
