Chronicles Of A Wondering Soul: A Dragon's Token
Opened my eyes to see a knight
In full gear like he's about to fight
turn my head left and right
but no one else in sight.
thinking of my last scuffle
my words where muffled.
Knight shouts: I'm here to slay a dragon
he even brought a giant wagon.
With the picture clear
I know that I'm a dragon
try to fly but wings
are torn, they flap but mostly sagging.
Ambush! some one yells
using catapults and swords
to my knees I fell.
Stop it now, a woman says
dragons are noble creatures don't you know?
Why can't we be friends instead of foes.
Fearless to my fiery breath and scaly skin
she reaches over and slightly grins.
Let him go or parish
but I felt so much pain and anguish.
You destroy their mountain tops
and kill there family
than except them to give up entirely.
Too late for this rescue I thought to myself
but when I pass I will bless her with more than wealth.
Death I can see from far
my gift to her a dragon's heart.
With this you will always be protected and
have company even when you feel most rejected.
As I past away
my body turned to a fiery light
that kept all the knights at bay
Night bright as day
Hold your hands out and open
as I prepare my token
Invoking spells unspoken and slightly choking.
My whole body turns into a rose petals
red and soft but yet made of metal
In this form I will never wither away
A wondering soul I will eternally stay.
