The Black Revelation

She is awake, Not caused by a tremor in the force, But with the power of a cataclysmic earthquake, Feel the shifting in the air, The trembling of the ground, Listen to the animal's howling in despair, Heed the people's desperate pleas for mercy as they flee underground. Bear witness to the revival, Of a Jedi who claimed ultimate victory, Over the unstoppable Mandalorians and their sacking of the galaxy, By harnessing power condemned as heineous and vile, Who rose above the frail trappings of her order, Rejecting pacifistic stagnation to embrace passionate action, Leading an army of noble Jedi to combat the scourge marauding the Republic's borders, Though ultimately successful it was not personal weakness that led to her downfall, But by the betrayal of her apprentice and the deception of her masters, Yet even when silenced by the light the dark heard her call, And restored her position as the galaxy's arbiter. The sky does not darken without reason, The stars do not retreat without motivation, They have understood the whispers that tell of a new dawn, One crafted from the rotting corpse of a dying sun, Led by a women wielding a righteous fire, To strike down all that oppose her, And the galaxy's new beginning.
