Salutations! I’ve been trying to solve this darn forsaken rebus puzzle for more than a month, but have gotten no where and this is my last hope…
I think it is meant to be historical but it could also be some kind of quote.
Please help or I’ll suffer a horrible fate
(Disappointment)

Thank you for listening!

God gets full credit for this:

He started off as a very rich man. Had a wife, and a child who he loved dearly. Was later sent off to the military and fought for the country. His childhood days were over, and his bags once filled with money were now empty sacks, and he lays on the cold ground.
