Deadly Acceptance

It appears to me
Through transparent panes
The scenery lanes
Having a choice to be opaque
Through glasses that seem less
Of a pic, more of a biopic
How I'm a leaf coloured soldier
Inside my cabin
Soon to step out in a duality of grave
Helpless like a romantic
Accepting everything once again
Even the bandages
Of today's blood
Till a stained tomorrow
Who knows, what high rated canvases
Are really made of.
