Day Five : call me a Citizen again
The door slides open…"Come on, you have to meet with the council."
The guards enter; there are six in all
Intimidated by little me and the death I hold in my hands
"Am I having a trial?"
"Do I look like I know? I was told to escort you. "
Shackles again, wrists at my sides they lead me out
I shuffle along like an old man led through the prison complex.
Six guards in all,
A macabre parade
They fear me, they know what I can do
But I would never hurt them
They are not my enemies.
But if I attack
They will push the button and the energy will pulse through me
And if it's enough, my heart will stop
Aha! Maybe that was the secret, get blasted enough and die.
Zeth is dead
I am a murderer
I am free
The Republic will release me to Master Skywalker
It is his choice to decide my fate
Han says it is not Luke's way to seek vengeance
How do I face the man I nearly killed?
Han says he thinks I am still a great Jedi
Why does he still believe in me?
I return to Yavin
I return to Master Skywalker's
If he chooses to kill me, I will die honorably with my head held high
Too long ago
You're just as good as everyone else
Dad? I'm really sorry…..you know that.
The Last Dream
Zeth stands on the platform
Dauron hits him in the head
Precious minutes pass
I close the portal
Empty I watch
From my eyes
He was my brother
He liked to swim and fish
And spend countless patient hours
Just playing with me
He laughed easy
Was popular with the girls
Top of his class
He had dreams
The empire took his future
I took his life
And even though I will always
Be the one
Who stopped his life at twenty-two
I am still
His baby brother
And I still love him
I hope he will forgive me
I hope he liked being a stormtrooper
Took pride in his job
Maybe even a girlfriend
I hope he knows I tried
I tried so hard
To save him
I'm sorry big brother
If I am allowed to live, my life will be spent
Why should anyone live as I did?
Yavin's heat greets me as I step from the Falcon
Skywalker's gaze is like the twin suns of his home planet
But there is no hate in his eyes
The Prodigal son returning
Deyer a place from a long time ago where a boy
That boy died somewhere in space above Carida
Maybe this time
The one standing here
Can be saved.
