The death of a hero
Is by no means
The death of hope.
For within the blood,
There’s a flash of light.
I have seen that light.
-A rising general
I was brainwashed to trust
The world was heaven’s sun.
I’m only a lost soul,
But my heart is far from done.
The world was heaven’s sun
Until the tyranny took over rule.
They let this world be blackened
With an erected moon as a fool.
Until the tyranny took over rule,
I was living in the limelight.
I am now just an eccentric nebula,
Unless I pour over the torchlight.
I was living in the limelight,
Until the stars were brought down.
Moonlight was all we had left,
And even it presented an erected frown.
Until the stars were brought down,
The world was still evergreen.
Now the fall of seasons has arrived,
Different meanings live behind the screen.
The world was still evergreen,
It’s up to us to return the light.
Now is the time to overthrow evil,
Now is the time to fight.
United power is everything.
Together, the virtuous souls
Of this planet
Must get together
Peace can’t solve every problem.
-A young philosopher
