Someone else's god

Against all odds
Here I am
They tried everything
my branches they broke
cut my roots and closed my water holes
I’ve searched high & low
collapse, I can not
Searched. Waited. Prayed
for my lords.
But just today somebody told
they are no more
within these suffocating walls

Oh ?

While karma takes it’s toll
my eyes, I tightly close
on my knees I fall
and implore
(only one I can behold)
on somebody else’s god
Confused. Desperate. Betrayed
I just hope
It wouldn’t matter after all
while on the other side, that I fought
another man’s war
Crimes. Lies . Beliefs
wouldn’t matter somehow
and saved will be my soul
