I wonder what price
would I dare to pay
to sit at the grand table
one fine day

to feast with the high king
under those golden shields
my soul lifted up
from the dying fields

with the brave few
having died in combat
and then chosen by Odin
just imagine that

but if Valhalla required the spilling
of innocent blood
I’d rather watch myself
slowly rot and decay in the mud

those that try to murder their way
through the mighty golden doors
are unworthy to enter the Hall
or to even sweep the floors

those misguided soulless bastards
that are all filled with hate
will never even see the holy doors
nor walk through the ancient gate

    So many believe the way to eternal life is by taking another’s life….strange what men can be made to believe.

      It’s so hard to understand how anyone can live in this wonderful world and see the all the beauty and sadness and decide to intentionally take another’s life.
