Shrouded in flesh,
We are Suns unborn.
Yet the light of what we will become
Burns in our eyes for all to behold.
Warriors are we, too long weary.
Yet again and again, we rise.
Our swords, our very souls,
Nicked and often dulled, but never broken.
From our knees, with leaden arms,
We offer our swords aloft.
With no prayer on our lips for our own sakes,
We swear again our hearts' allegiance.
Radiance breaks, hard upon the looming shadow,
The Dark that would enfold, consume us.
Bowed but unbroken, we weep with joy,
At the majesty that touches us.
Behold! Our swords, our souls,
Remade as new - edged again with keen purpose.
Our battle cry rings out, as we leap again into the fray.
And the echoes of that cry are heard,
By every heart, that listens...
