My Sword, My Sword!

It fills me with glee.

Once the villain is killed,

I shout “YIPEE!”

No monster or villain

Could escape my grasp!

But one villain in particular

Made me gasp.

He had large horns,

And a dark green robe

That spread fear

All throughout the globe

I challenged him

With my sword raised high

I shouted at him


He snarled in my face,

“No hero has ever beaten me!”

But I was determined

To set Earth free.

We fought to the death

I face his wrath

But his, far too powerful

Sliced my sword in half!

My Sword, My Sword!

The blade has been cut!

But, luckily my dagger

Stabbed him in the gut.

He cried out in pain

And feel to his knees.

I had to finish this,

Before anyone sees.

But my heart wasn’t in it

For the prizes in store.

In exchange for his death and his gore.

I told him to go

Head towards south

Don’t let your words

Escape your mouth.

My Sword, My sword!

Don’t you see?

That in exchange for the blade

The world has been set free!

"I was taught that a successful life was a happy one. When my teacher asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up I told her I wanted to be happy. She said I didn't understand the question. I said she didn't understand life."

I love the story so much! It's adorable. Just make sure that you're focused on what you're actually saying. At times I feel as though you are focusing so much on making a rhyme that you lose track of making sense. Other than that 5 stars!
