The burden of the world is on my shoulders.

Am I truly Atlas?

My heart bleeds as hope escapes me.

It flees like a prisoner.

Until it is empty.

Then death comes with all its bitterness.

I am frozen with Brutus, Cassius, and Judas.

For all eternity.

Lost within a maze like a rat,

Dirty and worthless,

In darkness forever.

Then dawn's light shines upon me.

I feel the morning dew against my face.

It's my only comfort as I come before judgment.

It blinds me as I walk, ahead in fear.

Beatrice's face, my redeemer,

My passion and desire,

Like true love's first kiss,

Life renews itself.

I escaped Limbo.

I found satisfaction.
