Winter's Fire

a poem inspired by Winter's Fire

Winter's Fire

Burn down the sun

Light funeral pyres

The end has begun.

Lay all your people

Lay them to rest

Hide your children's eyes

Hide your children's eyes

For the flame

Consumes the world.

Winter's Fire

Lay waste to the hills

The hills of the ancients

Who speak of the tale

The day winter came

Man swung his blade

And killed the keeper of the day.

Death bringers

Come forth.

Wars claim all sons.

For the night seems to burn with anguish.

In the end, in the end

Morning will rise.

For all the brothers who have fallen.

Winter's Fire

Kill the last King

For he sleeps in the comfort

Of his wine, of his drink.

In the palace walls

You'll find the answer

To the one the people call

Oppressor.

Oppressor of man.

Steel, might steel forged

From the Winter's Fire.

Slay, slay, slay.

Innocence abandoned.

Hope has been banished

To the sea of vast mistake.

Winter's Fire

Seek the unknown

For the wise think themselves

To be greater.

Smite, smite, take them down

With no mercy

For the wise think themselves

To be greater.

The years, horrid years

Of torment, enslavement

By a system that never caves.

Oh the stars do not guide us

The wind does not hear us

The world seems not to care.

Winter's Fire

Burn down the sun

Light the funeral pyres

The end has begun.
