Each time I get extremely mad or far gone,
Strength gathers in my hands that is bygone.


Sometimes it’s only for self defense,
Other times it’s when my stress is immense.


To other people, the transformation is terrifying. 
Can’t say I blame them - but to me it’s gratifying.


Dragons alone possess imposing presence,
As well as mastery over their elemental essence.


These are dragons with powers over one element.
Even though I posses four, I'm not arrogant.


For I’m a Dragon Slayer, a disciple of Spyro’s legacy.
To those that think otherwise, I hear nothing but heresy! 


To other Dragon Slayers, I have much more control.
I don’t use my powers, since it leaves giant holes.


To those that wish to know what powers I honed,
Brace yourself! For you have been warned.


As I assume my purple dragon form,
Scales spread on my skin like a thunder storm.


My skin hardens and burns as my spine unwinds;
They reveal great wings that makes my foes blind.


Those that kill for glory or appetite are beings I despise.
When I reveal my dragon form, enemies face their demise!


I assume half my dragon form, don’t dare be swayed.
If I were to fully transform, my bloodlust can’t be staid.


I fight like this only when evil proves too strong.
Those that think I’m weak are extremely wrong.


For my powers come from the great dragon Spyro.
I possess control over earth, thunder, ice and pyro.


When I use Spyro’s power it overwhelms armies.
If that’s not enough, wait until I unleash my furies.


My fire fury involves creating pyro with the sun’s heat.
Once I’ve gathered enough, my foes are dead meat.


My Ice fury calls forth the chills within my cold spine.
It forms into shards, shards that can freeze giant shrines.


The thunder fury comes from the excitement I feel.
The power to overwhelm and break hearts of steel.


The earth fury draws power from the world itself.
Sometimes that power alone can overwhelm myself.


After explaining all of this to thee,
Do you think you can even defeat me?


To be this strong is a crazy thing,
Which is why I’m the next dragon king!

This poem was written by Christopher Pfingsten (me), who has a wild imagination and a dream to become an artist in animation and free hand drawing in his future. This poem that I created expesses my love for the game Spyro and a new begining.The thought of creating this dragonslayer was inspired from the anime FairyTail that I've been watching lately. Also how it would be cool if there was a dragon slayer that trained under spyro and gain his strength. This expresses my view of what would it be like to wield the strength of the purple dragon. How it would feel to have such magnitudes of power coursing through a person's veins.This is what I imagine if someone were to be capable of such powers. Also to express my imagination since that's what most shows and stories were created from. I created an image for this poem once I get aproval from Teenink I'm hopeing to add this to my poem. Look forward to it.
