11pm – fifteen – no title

as i stand waiting as my fellow officers
are led into the room…
i contemplate – what does this mean?
how did i get here?
why did i say yes?
what would happen if i left now?
as i listen to the the obligation i am repeating,
answering the questions asked of me
as my duties are given to me
and as the crown is placed on my head
the full magnitude of what i have
said yes to begins to realize…
now as my year of service is complete
i am so glad i have done this…
