PROLEGOMENON
Introductory Stanzas To “God And War”

UNDERSTANDING

What you do not understand, just read again.
Or perhaps you have not been where it relates.
Yet still you may by reading find your name
Where you thought not to trespass on your fate.
We all in life cannot play every game
Though playing one might well describe a few.
And though some think that all are just the same
Who can deny that what they say is true.
Yet those who know where greater pain resides,
That plants its burden lasting in the mind;
Those who have braved a multitude of tides,
Theirs was a game, not of the normal kind.
Thus with respect I write what I know is true.
The rest is for your thoughts, your soul and you.
