Last Stand

An arrow flies
Straight to his heart
His dream shatters
His life slowly fades
With nothing left to lose
And almost nothing to gain
He stands up still
An indomitable will
Another volley of arrows
Threaten to break his spirit
He does not know how long he can continue
Or why he even bothers to do so
Slowly, he rises still
Only to stagger under the weight
Of a thousand arrows
A thousand sorrows
A thousand heartbreaks
