Betraying The King



I had honored you as a brother, 

Held onto you like a piece of gold, 

Now I only see you as a coward,

Failing to do as he was told. 


You have been consumed by evil,

Ignoring me as you rule,

Continuing to join forces with the enemy, 

A man this savage and cruel? 


You gain strength through blood, 

Showing no mercy wherever you go, 

Why do you choose war?

I do not wish to become your main foe. 


Anger had consumed me,

Second was fear, 

I had no other choice,

A war is near.

  • Comment from author about the poem: To be honest, I really liked this poem because it combines both power and betrayal together. The speaker is basically forced to betray his brother and go against him because now that his brother was king, and held a great deal of power over him, he was beginning to feel much more superior. This is important to me because we're able to see the reaction that one person is able to have to such power, which in this case would completely change the king in a negative way as it would make him take part in certain actions that he usually would have never taken part in, resulting in war between the two, which the speaker had been trying to avoid.
