The Ballad of Tom

Updated: Feb 9


A young man on medicine.

**************************


An enormous hole in my heart,

Gave me a good reason to depart,

From a former self, an inferior being,

For survival he was too unfit.

For others he defeated too quickly,

What he truly wanted to be...

A masterless slave, he was too depressed,

Thus his true self he was quick to oppress.


Love letters, to send, he dared,

To those for himself didn't care.

Too unfeeling, too cowards, they were,

To flee, while putting him in nightmare.

Normality's poor excuse,

To choose, to disrespectfully, refuse.

Hopefully, these ladies' regret,

Will be not see him turn,

Because I dared to bury Tom.

The sissy I used to be.

I don't frown, as now I wear the crown,

The one you all now, see.

And I will not say, "Rest In peace",

Such respect he's unworthy to recieve.

Because now we are all, in good company,


I was too busy to philosophize,

That only few, outside, I actualized.

Former handicap, user of a CPAP,

Depraved of many a touch.

And in the absence of much,

My accomplishments, became, unmatched.

I refuse to move on, although I can,

For the past makes me,


Because I dared to bury Tom.

The sissy I used to be.

I don't frown, as now I wear the crown,

The one you all now, see.

And I will not say, "Rest In peace",

Such respect he's unworthy to recieve.

Because now we are all, in good company,

A company of greater philosophy.


And as more power I accumulate,

A sight in my eye, a possible mate.

Whoever she'll be, rest assured, I'll make,

For I can be loyal as a dog,

Show my love, with more than just songs.

That's because, I'm he who muredered Tom,

And thus, I grew more strong.

Because I dared to bury Tom.

The sissy that I used to be.

I don't frown, as now I wear the crown,

The one you all now, see.

And I will not say, "Rest In peace",

Such respect he's unworthy to recieve.

Because we are all, in superior company,

An empire, of greater, philosophy.
