The Guessing Game

ghosts trot in sequined gowns
diving through wanted beings
scouring naked grounds to
rock the cradle of the seeing

every life comes to an end
a journey we all seek
never laughing at fallen horses
or believing in the weak

soldiers become warriors
senators become presidents
royalty becomes royalty
but what about the other inheritance?

no one knows their
deepest depths
their secrets kept
their last breath

these are words unwritten
creating sabotage of
human thought
a guessing game worth bidding
