To be a King is to live gloriously,
To die violently,
And to be remembered

To be a King is to live in the vanguard
To be first on the field of battle
And last to retreat

To be a King is to live without acknowledging defeat
To be presented as a God to the public
And to remain unflinching in the face of scorn


The author's comments:
This poem highlights the difficulties of being a "King", of being someone in the public eye and how someone in the public eye has to deal with a lot of abuse and its hard, but there are benefits too. This doesn't only apply to celebrities, I intended it to apply to high school
