Legacy….

Used with Permission, Courtesy of http://www.justingedak.com

Ermine and crown
she makes her way down
to the bowels of the castle
deep

An oath left to swear
heavy burden, she bears
where the ghost of her yesterday
sleeps

She is style and grace
her footsteps fill the space
her blue eyes show no one her
tears

Though each step is hard
her hip still holds its sword
but this battle’s been raging for
years

By the edge of her blade
she’s stopped many a knave
countless daemons she’s put to their
rest

But despite all her claims
of martial fortune and fame
there’s one that still lives in her
chest

And she’d cut it free
with the blade beside her knee
if she could live without this little
part

But in all her domain
neither through persuasion nor pain
none can give her a different
heart
