[ Ode To My Memories ]
 
Cold was the fallen murmuring snow
      Upon the surface of my tangible skin
   Back when loss of memories: Pain it did flow
      Like ecstasy of monumental sin
   Stood I with pride of a hundred lions
      Aflamed with fires of memories
   No winter cold, nor passion of aeons
      No earthly snow, nor mundane glories
   Could, atop of my furies ascend
      Nor exists below my sanity a Sane
   For I drift in my silence seeking no end
      A tenuous struggle as winds membrane
 
Remained the signs for ages today
      As I journey in silence wild and soar
   "Slay every friend!", my memories did say
      "Slay every foe!", it said before
   Then silence, so dull in me appeared
      Echoing a voice louder than the Sun:
   "Your memories, O son, fears they bring...
      Your shadow of existence, death it adores!"
   Replied with a chant that I did sing:
      "An end I shall bring of wars!
   And be when salvation comes, the king...
      For kingdoms where thrust awakening endures!"

That was quite intense and powerful reading, especially the second verse... it really shows the battle we face when the past tries to harm the present and future like a demon in the night.
