Double edged sword

March 24, 2009
The blade that destroys is the blade that saves us all
The blade that kills is the blade that lives
The last one standing the responsibility of his role
To stand above the fallen and lead
Lead forevermore
Into a battle that he must lose
The perfect irony of his soul

No one knows of his past
He carries on without thought
His goal at the end of this war
The war started by kings
Never met but still hated
For the land and the gold
For the lives of others souls

Standing among the fallen
His brothers and lost friends
Lay beside him asking for mercy
Lays waste to the wicked the just and the innocent
He cannot rest
He cannot tire

The blade that falls is the blade that rises
The only blade to take life is the one that loses life
A double edged blade that he bears
His fate sealed by the burden he carries
Carries the fate of us all
He knows he cannot fall.
