Nero’s Future

Living a lifetime in the dark,
Leaves a man weak.

Hindered by this deception,
The spirit diminishes.

One act of kindness,
Leaves a man strong.

Understanding the lie,
Lifts the spirit.

The future become bright,
The shackles release.

Nero no longer fears,
Agrippina’s grip.

The future will change,
At the hands of the willing.
