To the Fallen Children of the Gods
by Lord Shining Starr
Age Group: Adult
To the Fallen Children of the Gods
He called to you to go and fight;
Make peace for all who dwell in the light.
Diligently, you played the game;
To bloody the fields and gain high fame.
A young man, bard and scribe;
New to the world, the pride of his tribe.
A father, who with family still;
Did hear the war god’s angry shrill.
A wise man, gray with children grown;
Into this bloody arena was thrown.
And so the three fought night and day;
To bring peace to a land, to let freedom have sway.
The protector of them sat with glee;
As the enemy of they we adore did flee.
But the battle was far from done;
And the day was not yet won.
So, home they marched tried and true;
Beaten and broken and marked black and blue.
Their families rejoiced upon that day;
As the Goddess returned them in her own way.
Each with their stories to tell;
Of their struggles in a place like hell.
The bard told tales never boring;
Of the men in all their glory.
The father watched with careful eye;
As his children did play in the rye.
And the wise man, swelled with pride;
Had returned home, since he had died.
But no peace came to him;
As all who knew him stood grim.
"Fear not, " said an eloquent voice;
"He fought for peace, it was his choice."
"For his reward for his pain;
Is the greatest gift to gain."
"Dear Bard, " came the voice;
"Let your song, remember his choice."
"To you a father, he did grant;
The right to be where other’s can’t."
"Who are you that brings comfort here?
We beg to thee, to us appear."
And so she appeared before their eyes;
The beautiful Mother, in no disguise.
"I am she, who held your hand,
As you battled for my land."
"The gift for all so struggle here;
Is rebirth, without fear."
"For what dies is made a new;
Only for those that hold the Mysteries true."
"For every beating heart does pray,
To us three in their own way."
The father, now a wise man became;
And the bard, a father tame.
And a son, fresh and new;
Now has come to stand here too.
He now stands, with harp in hand;
Telling stories and sharing songs of the land.
Again they hear the battle cry;
And Aries drum does beat in time.
Back they go into that place;
To confront the enemy with no face.
Back they go with no shame;
To win themselves, glory and fame.
They fight for freedom well deserved;
And for peace that is reserved.
Aries blessing he does bring;
As swords to clash, and bang, and ring.
And the Mother holds their hand;
As they Fight now for her land.
So ever remember Children of Light;
Those that chose to fight this night.
In a place much like hell;
Of this the bards did tell.
