The Wise One

Book Two: Awakening

Arc One

So It Begins

From darkness to light

From warmth to the cold

The shadows grow bright

It's as I was told

Silence to sound

None hear my cry

Friends gather around

None meet my eye

I am being born

Life wants to break me

My loyalties torn

I am awakening

"Man is least himself when he talks in his own person. Give him a mask, and he will tell you the truth."

Oscar Wilde

"There's a place I see you follow me

Just a taste of all that might come to be

I'm alone but holding breath you can breathe

To question every answer counted"
