1240: Origin

"Master, you were right. You are the harmless kind." Whatever made you say so? "I got robbed of my principles Just as I was about to hide In the comfort of your nest." How come they were able to Take advantage of your age. Frozen feathers make good substitutes For twinkling blades "Master, I fell into a stream. It turned into black and white." It's not the effect of your hide. "Your feathers are dripping with blood." How come you can sense my ire Even if you're blinded by a heartache? Frozen feathers Disguised as twinkling blades Come to take advantage Of how you depict age. When I tear my old self off I'll hum along to the song Of the vile sunlight Even if I've no intention to refuse its crimes "I'll do as you say." You can start by sacrificing yourself To aid my return. "I thought I was your disciple." Yes, one without discipline. It sounds more like a clever guess. "Master, you were right. I'm your beginning." I pray that we'll never have to end #1240: ORIGIN ©Jake Ponce [June 27 , 2010, 8:05am]
