What is true but never seen,
Only to you, hypocritical queen.
From the darkness to the light,
Sending forth your bravest knight.
Claiming to protect land, air and sea,
Though a guardian you shall never be.
Through emerald eyes many knaves will gaze,
In need of completion, the hard maze.
Trials of betrayal a king shall face,
Only to tend again to her grace.
Thou be made a jester, made a fool
Never to escape her majesty, cruel.
Queen of fire, queen of fight,
Queen of pain and grueling fright,
Tell this tale forever seen,
Only not by you, my hypocritical queen.

This is a really beautiful poem! I appreciate the proper grammar and punctuation as well as your superb vocabulary. You also put in enough effort to make it rhyme, so excellent work! This is going on my favourites list.

"Try to learn to breathe deeply,
really to taste food when you eat,
and when you sleep, really to sleep.
Try as much as possible to be
wholly alive, with all your might,
and when you laugh, laugh like hell,
and when you get angry, get good
and angry. Try to be alive. You will
be dead soon enough."
William Saroyan

I like the context you put this in! Very cool!
