Javert's Silent Soliloquy

I look to the heavens; the stars stare back

Bright and burning, never-changing, guiding,

You shine with grace I dream to have, yet lack

Humbled by your purity, you're blinding

So I follow your lead to righteousness

Abandon compassion, follow what's just

For me the pursuit of rogues is endless

Sacrifice pleasures, I've done what I must

Yet now it seems I've been wrong all these years

I sold my soul to serve man's wicked law

I look to the heavens and find black fears

Cold and hollow, my life was only flaw

How is it I sought Heaven and found Hell?

I'll forsake life, this fallen sentinel.
