Just a rewrite of the poem I wrote awhile back. Enjoy, review, don't own, etc., etc., etc.
Who is the young man with the fire in his eyes?
With the strong, prideful gait and the purposeful stride
Who carries himself with an air so forlorn?
Who faces the world, looking jaded and worn?
Who is the man with the serious face?
Who carries himself with indifferent grace?
The young man you see, with so much strength and pride
Is carrying a thousand men's burdens inside
The fire in his eyes masks a mind full of fears,
Of anger and wisdom beyond his few years
Don't be fooled by this boy, for he puts up an act
To keep secrets from the past he can never take back
The family he killed
The old life forsaken
Hopes that were dashed
Ideals that were taken
And broken like glass against a rocky shore
Forcing himself live day to day
Accepting his fate and what little he has
While secretly wishing for more.
That's the young man with the fire in his eyes
Uchiha Itachi's his name.
And despite it all, if he had his choice…
He'd do it all again.
Reviews are loved. :D
