False Colours


 False colours

I have ridden under banners,

Held faith in words of trust;

Then found out in the twilight hour,

The lies that hurt so much;

Fallen for a soft voice,

Like ship wrecker’s false decoys,

Hoping when the storm had passed –

I was mistaken by the noise.


I held the hands of Angels,

That had risen out of Hel,

Knowing full inside, that destiny

Would cast me down as well.

Nine horses I have worn out,

In searching for my dream –

But false colours in the rainbow,

Are never what they seem.
