Living Anew

On his deathbed,

Nicholas Eric Covert the Third

Sees a life not lived,

Rigid and confined to a path

Not of his choosing.

Every choice decided

By what is best,

For the family legacy,

For the empire built,

For the future of his people,

But never for him.

In this life precious 

Little is about the man.

On each slow exhale 

Nicholas Eric Covert the Third,

Dreams of living his life anew,

For himself.
