My son, it is time for you to rise

Time to become who you were meant to be.

Wake up, battle on, never think twice.

 

The journey awaits you; swiftly, time flies

And now you must see.

My son, it is time for you to rise

 

Take your sword, fierce but wise;

Your shield, noble and free

Wake up, battle on, never think twice

 

Never forget your past allies

Honor them, thy future’s key

My son, it is time for you to rise

 

Never break your earthly ties

Fly, fly through the wispy sea

Wake up, battle on, never think twice

 

Hark! Do you hear the Dragon Emblem’s cries?

It calls for your name, heroic thee.

My son, it is time for you to rise

Wake up, battle on, never think twice

well crafted.

it could be a dialog to inspire the son to fight.

Let me tell you a little story

In India when the Hindus were abused by tyrant kings and their militants, and refusal to conversion to another faith meant death. We had no choice but to fight back to defend ourselves.

This was around the 15th century. The militant group is known as Sikhism.

They are now known as some of the best Indian soldiers. The first borns always need to be Sikhs, keep the traditional beard, bracelet, turban, and long hair, and join the army, if possible.

In the event that there is a need to go to war. Sikh soldiers in the military would wipe off the sindhoor from their wives forehead. Depicting that his wife is now a widow. Given this widow state, he can now fight without concerns about his family. To his family, he is already dead.

He never goes back home in defeat. It is better for him to fight to the death or until victory. When he comes back after a victorious battle, he remarries his wife.

During the war, all he thinks of is his objective, for the good of the country, and his loyalty. Sikh soldiers are some of the best I have heard of.

I am not Sikh though, I am Sindhi, a neighboring province, but that is another long story altogether.

A wonderful piece.

Beautiful ballad. The coming of age, the time to be a man, to assume one's place in the family. The symbolism is a work of art. Well done.

I think this is one of your more 'mature' pieces. I see your growth in this one. Well done.
