Warriors Verse Pt2

‘I was once innocent of life’ said the warrior to the priest, ‘I was once a warrior’ said the priest

‘I find myself a man upon his church, as on the battlefield I stand’ said the warrior ‘my god is one without mercy and my bible is the sword’

‘As into my temple you stumble, beaten and broken’ the priest exclaims ‘now you demand redemption for all the blood you have spilled’

‘No more than you priest, in the days before your vows’ the warrior replies ‘so give me forgiveness, so in death I may find peace, or leave me as heavens fool’

‘I shall ease your passing, so into the realms beyond your soul may pass ’ the priest cast his words ‘so that in this life you may be forgiven, and by the angels be dammed’

Warriors Verse Pt1

The chaos around him was but a distraction, the lives ruined and removed, a mere hindrance

Deaths shadow having become his own, a gift as his target lay broken and damned

Barely resembling the warrior he was before, full of hope and fire, now hollow with anger

As in the name of vengeance, he landed his blade, in the name of vengeance his quest reached its end

 

Then his eyes were opened, no longer blinded by pain

The chaos around him, lives ruined and shamed, deaths shadow having consumed him

Leaving only a burned out soul, as in the name of revenge, he had caused his fall

 

And as he fell out of memory another soul was caught

In the wake of all that had transpired was a fresh victim, having claimed the anger stained blade from his father’s body, not yet cold

 

Corrupting powers found a new pawn as another warrior was gripped by vengeance pure

I Am

I am the darkness and the night, wrapped within a thousand shadows

So to all who would challenge me, prepare to face an immortal rage

And though this shell of mine may be cracked and weak

I strike from a core as bright as to burn the skies

Or anyone who would test my will

Unless you fight with poison sword and jaded eyes
