the colour of trust by arty_farty on 15 June 2006 9:32pm
 
i found this on wotmania.com

tell me what you think,
btw an Aes Sedai is like a female wizard

Give me your trust said the Aes Sedai
On my shoulders I support the sky
Trust me to know and to do what is best
And I will take care of the rest

But trust is the colour of a dark seed growing
Trust is the colour of a heart's blood flowing
Trust is the colour of a soul's last breath
Trust is the colour of death

Give me your trust said the queen on her throne
I bear the burden of ruling alone
Trust me to lead and to judge and to rule
And no man will think you a fool

But trust is the sound of the grave dog's bark
Trust is the sound of betrayal in the dark
Trust is the sound of a soul's last breath
Trust is the sound of death

Give me your trust said the king on high
Our nation shall triumph, our enemies die
Trust me to rule with a firm gentle hand
And peace will prevail in our land

But trust is the touch of a knife in the back
Trust is the touch of the ropes on the rack
Trust is the touch of a soul's last breath
Trust is the touch of death

Give us your trust said the lady and lord
We will protect you by law and by sword
Trust us to keep your land safe and secure
And we will ensure it endures

But trust is the scent of an open grave
Trust is the scent of an unwashed slave
Trust is the scent of a soul's last breath
Trust is the scent of death

Give me your trust said the love of your life
I'll be your lover and I'll be your wife
Trust me to love you and stand by your side
As mother of children and bride

But trust is the taste of a poisoned cup
Trust is the taste of a life given up
Trust is the taste of a soul's last breath
Trust is the taste of death


But trust is the colour of a dark seed growing
Trust is the colour of a heart's blood flowing
Trust is the colour of a soul's last breath
Trust is the colour of death

Who DID write it? Man, that guy had issues!

Interesting, interesting poem. Who among us hasn't felt that way about the world at some point?
