Author Note: This is a poem on the possible thoughts of Liu Feng, the adopted son of Liu Bei, as he is about to be executed. Based more on the novel rather then history. Was on an old account of mine. I don't own anything, these men brave men fought many hundreds years ago for many differing reasons.

Liu Feng's Last Moments

Father

Why won't you hear my plea

Father

Will my death sate your anger

I was born as Kou Feng

But my parents died

Liu Mi took me in

You take me away from him

Father

I was so proud that day

Father

Were you ever proud of me

I served in Jing

At Bowang

At Xin Ye

At Chi Bi

Father

You left me at Jiang Ling

Father

I stopped Zhou Yu for you

I fought with Wei Yan

I captured Gao Pei

I drove back Zhang Ren

I seized Dingjun Mountain

Father

I did my best for you

Father

Was I only a pretend son

I was unable to stand

Against Cao Zhen

Or Xu Huang

But I took Shangyong

Father

I governed Shangyong for you

Father

I wish I had never seen the city

Guan Yu marched to Fan

Xu Huang drove him back

While he was gone

Lu Meng stole Jing away

Father

Liao Hua came for help

Father

I sent him away

My Uncle did not approve of me

He insulted me in your ears

He drove us apart

He always had a place in your heart

Father

I could not save Uncle

Father

It was better that I hold Shangyong

You promoted me

I thought just maybe

That it was to bring us closer

I was such a fool

Father

My friend deserted

Father

I fought him for you

Meng Da sent to me

A letter advising me

To change to Wei

I stayed loyal

Father

I was unable to bring him in

Father

Would it have saved me

Beaten at Xiangyang

Shangyong and Fangling

Deserted the Han

I came home defeated

Father

I pleaded my case

Father

I am so very sorry

You eat as a man

You dress as a man

You are no more

Then clay or wood

Father

Your words were cruel

Father

You condemn me to death

Uncle cost you Jing

You execute me for him

Liu Shan is your real son

He is the one you loved

Father

I was never a son to you

My time has come for me

To go to the Golden Springs

Goodbye Father

I wish I had made you proud
