A cheesy poem about a gladiator, the picture i drew next to it is cool though. It's gonna be my senior journal.

Continued below...

Sacramentum gladiatorium
Uuri, vinciri, verberari, ferroque necari

There you stand
Consecrated in the earth,
That like a sponge
Lapped the sanguine mixture
From your greatest friends
And your greatest foes.
Led you from womb, placenta,
Now on ten toes
Arms parted like a gull, embracing
All of it, all of them
A gaze towards
Elysium.

And one note earlier
You entered your world
Unmarred, a wide-eyed virgin
Before the dance
Of metal,
But now
experienced lover,
Gnarled with scars, blackened
By the sun
Your eyes trace before you
One of
The many lives that has
Just begun.

Hold your breath,
Rush careless
Towards your end
During your baptism
Of armour and blood.
And at the end of the road, the gates
At the end of all things,
You will gasp, kissing fresh air
As the harp plays its last chord
I tell you now,
Reach,
Reach,
Reach,
For that wooden sword.
