Pharaoh's dream

Sitting high and powerful, defiant and condescending
Is the chosen one, the pharaoh.
The absolute, The ruler from heaven;as the world calls
And obediently at his feet it falls

He dreamt for a mark of his glory
a one of its kind, magnificent and grand
A monument to mark his rule of this land

Years and Years of toiling in the desert sun
Realizing someone else's dream
They remained occupied
until one day when the glory was out of its hide

It looked sturdy and magnificent
Built With their flesh and blood
The symbol of glory would sure leave a mark
Just different one in each heart

The active years of their lives spent
They had no emotions to vent
The unsung heroes never again thought
What havoc to them,the pharaoh's dream has brought

Realizing they wont be remembered for long
They lived along singing the glory
Forgetting the mark it made
And waiting for the wounds to fade.

Nice to know there are people who can see through the magnificence of the wonders of the world and accredit the sacrifices of the forgotten.
