Davon Shackleford ~ WHITE DWARF

I’ve read about many great men in my life but only one colossus
Only now do I understand what this force of nature was: the light in a dark world–Alexander the Great
323 BC the year darkness conquered light
And within hours the wars of the world began
His presence was like the light of Apollo
And through it, his men were better than themselves
Men rise and fall like the winter wheat but Alexander’s name will never be forgotten
Find peace my brother
