The Arbiter

A disgraced warrior

I may be

But from all battles

I did not flee

I was pulled aside

from all the rest

And a mark

was burned upon my chest

With new armor

but full of shame

I was given a great quest

that would restore honor to my name

With nerves of steel

but faith that's frayed

My race was brutally

and utterly betrayed

With the Halo's Ark

ready to light

With new friends

we must finish the fight

Alone I stand

and with my knife

I take

Truth's pathetic life

With the Ark destroyed

and nowhere to roam

My name restored

I make my way home.
