This is my past, coming back
Yet, what you know I do lack
You blame me fore the crime done
But you are my enemy and survival is the name of the game.
I didn't kill you just the same.
You were alive hatred bred
You longed for revenge for what I did.
It was an accident by my hand
But you plot to make me pay
Poison weapon tips
causing loss of sight.
Then to take an innocent's life.
Now I fall in the pit of despair
Finding no salvation there.
Lost,alone I question doubt.
What my life is all about.
Seems to be that what was mine
Has turned against me for all time.
Longing to rise above
I climb the tower
to get higher up and gaze
upon the streets below.
My heart is heavy and full of woe.
My swords have a mind of their own.
I raise them high and scream
My soul is torn.
Then fickle fate
takes a hand, plunges me down
to the world below.
My hated sword rises now,
against me as I plunge to the
ground and so all I know
is sudden fear, as I plunge to my fate.
My cursed sword, takes my life.
I didn't want to leave him,
Wanted him to come.
I know he can't help it,
nor can things stay the same.
I heard his questions
and wanted our Sensei near,
perhaps he held the answers
to what plagued the leader's heart.
I shouldn't have left him
Should never have left him be
Yet he wanted to be alone,
in a world of half light and half dark.
Our fearless leader losing heart.
So I sit and wait,
questioning what it may take
to get him back, and away.
But then these thoughts are torn away.
They come in our home,
threatening our lives and bearing guns.
Though they order us to freeze.
I do not listen or heed.
I launch to attack,
This is our home.
If we fight together we will prevail
But it seems I stand alone.
The loud sound of guns
roar through the lair
breaking the silence and peace
that once was there.
As I crumple gainst the wall
My blood spills staining ground
My family handcuffed stands around.
"What are you freaks?" an intruder asks.
Adding to the injury.
I gasp in pain, and with dying breath
Blame Leo, knowing in my heart,
this couldn't have happened, had he'd been here.
Even without his sight
He could have set things right.
I stand up high, though I can't rise above
The pain that stings, the past that strikes
Hard with all of it's might.
Leaving me to a world of black and white.
The vision fades, it doesn't last.
Nothing more then a dream
perhaps of a future to be.
I drop the swords the clang and ring
Metal on metal. I hear them sing.
Down to the rooftop under me.
I stand and watch, the world, unseen.
