My Sword, My Shadow
How long has darkness been your ally?
Ever since it revealed to me the truth,
How can the truth be revealed without light?
The light blinds the fool, but the dark enlightens the foolproof,
How is it that you find shelter in that which consumes all?
The same way in which we are able to sleep at night,
How can you equate a time of peace to the greatest fall?
That which our conscious actions cannot solve our mind rights,
How can you speak in metaphors when your actions betray your intentions?
My demands unwavering loyalty and absolute discretion,
And who is your master?
