I awoke with a start
and realized how rich I truly am.
My coffers are filled
with love and hope.
My friends are my jewels and gold.
I’ve no need for trivial sparkles
that perish as quick as the sun sets.
I am still a man among men
and a king in my little room.
I dance between memories
with rabbits and ducks
and give them life
and they offer more love
than my queen
ever mustered up for show.

I now realize…
I never had what it took
to be a king
until I lost my kingdom.
