Discern Thoughts

I, the ruler of the universe,
the master of the world,
the voice to reckon,
the conqueror

And, as I tarnished all,
trounced every soul,
vanquished every person,
till they fall

I wonder,
why the peace still deceives me,
why there is unrest within,
why the defeated eyes still haunt me

The spall from broken hearts,
scattered over my face,
scouting me to assume penance,
everything is so hard to discern

And in the chaotic limbo of my confetti mind,
though I have everything,
I realize, I achieved nothing
for harmony can’t bear its root
in the influence of guilt
