Undaunted he rides on creature with wings
Head thrown back, from true heart he sings,
Banner aloft, a symbol of power,
Challenging the beast, for this is his hour –
Misery and heartache he brings.
Struggle ensues in stars’ endless night,
Clashes almighty! A furious fight!
Mounts of giant standing keep to their pace,
Enabling each rider to take part in this race –
This marathon for forthcoming light.
Brilliance looks on, each heavenly body,
Shimmering with excitement, for these two embody
The battle that wages out here in this ‘hood,
Death is success for the bad or the good –
Mercy shown for nobody.
Years pass in combat, blood flows from the sky,
Drips to the earth and burns you and I,
Venom from one with viperish tongue,
Hooded and ready he sprung –
To the heart of hero forbye.
Evil was winning and good hung from his steed,
Victim too worthy but ready to bleed,
He looked all around in desperate plea
To stars in the galaxies, that’s you and that’s me,
And they responded, paid heed.
Mustering all mighty strength they maintained,
They breathed forth their power, in good’s name proclaimed,
Light will battle with darkness, it’s true,
One is enough, but many is better than few
So goodness may be blessed and ordained.
It’s true what I tell, it’s the conflict of old,
Centuries written, millennia told,
Where two hearts of one man, divided by cause,
Wreak havoc and vengeance with weapons and claws
And declare to the world they are bold.
But bolder than man with blackest of heart
Is the radiance of heavens that shone from the start
Seeking to illumine where darkness prevails,
Appease understanding with light-infused tales
Of glories one day to impart.

Reblogged this on the mmmmm family.
It’s disappeared from my blog and I can’t repost it!
The various mysteries and quirks of WordPress.:)x
A powerful and strong fight …I had movies go through my head as I read this Brave Heart, Avatar. If the need in the writer is so strong to pen these words then dramatic it shall be and tis all well for the reader.xx
Do you know I felt I saw the whole thing in my head too. Imagination is a wonderful thing. Not better than truth but still wonderful. :)x
So I can only comment on yours so far…
Excellent taste!!!! ;)x
WoW… I can really ONLY comment on your website!
That is so weird. Well, sit back and I’ll get you a hauf. ;)x
I wonder if this is a spam block. aopinionatedman.com The forum says if I write that it would block it if I am spam blocked. This is a test, sorry for using your website hope you don’t mind! Yours is the only one I can comment on… lmao…
Much is it worth?!:)……Bottle of your best, I’d say!;)
or is it ham?
I really cannot say.
Comment all you like, my man,
This will make my day!!!!!
No probs, really. 😉 At least, you’re lyao.
Oh, btw, just to add to the confusion, your last comment hasn’t shown up on my page. I answered you from the wee thingummybob at the top right. What do you call that? Well…that. This is all very strange. Don’t even know if that means that you got the last one from me. I could be talking to myself here. What’s new?! ;)x
Ok further update. Decided to check my spam folder. And guess what? You were there. Well, not you obviously, 😉 your last comment. Unspammed it and it now appears in my post. So, looks like you’ve been spammed. Wasn’t me, I swear!x
This is one of my favourites! Especially as I’m currently watching Eragon so all dragons flying and blood and gore!
Escapism at its best. :)x
