The Two Queens

The Two Queens 

In a far off distant land, lost within a realm, some unknown 
Where time skews, a mystical world, none have ever known
Reside two thrones, of such beauty and a black tainted heart
Sisters growing together but some painful lost love torn apart

The White Queen 

There was a Queen of angelic beauty, brilliance and light
With a heart filled with compassion and a love oh so bright 
Her love for her people and her throne beyond all compare 
And her gift for sharing all the wealth left no one in despair 

The beauty of the land was as far as the eye could see
All crops aplenty, for all to reap, no hunger, all are free
All of the land, for all of her people to live on and share
Where peace and harmony reigns, answers to all prayer

 The Black Queen 

There was a Queen of blackness, darkness and despair 
Where her deepest hatred and sorrow poisoned the air
Her bitterness for everything consumed her very soul
Creating such a blight which enveloped everyone whole

The land was barren, bleak, rancid soil gave no cultivation
Her throne, her people, just pawns, merely complications 
Her throne was of evil and gloom, her dominion was fear
Casting a shadow of despondency throughout the year

The White Queen would wonder “How could I help those in need”
“If I could only reach out to my lost sister, let my love supersede “
“Let the past be a distant memory of days so long ago”
“To hold her once again as we did, such as children grow”

The Black Queen exclaims “ What a fool my lost sister is she”
“Her beliefs in her people will be her downfall, so it must be”
“I can never forgive the past, nor shall I entertain such thought“
“Never shall I speak her name, or the misery that she brought”

Two sisters lost in a sea of woe and despair 
Both unable to find the forgiveness to repair
One hoping that one day things may change
One lost in hateful sorrow, never to exchange
