My Spirit is a Roaring Sea

I’m born to ride the crashing waveTo conquer each challenge anewReady to fight, forever braveReady to face a foe like youOut from the shadows you appearAnd steal me from my sheltered homeThe day has come, the day we fearNow I must face you on my ownYou have me now, you didn’t askLust and greed your […]

A Singular Spear

 I remember a time when happiness was mine When all was bright and full of color When i thought the world was mine When I listened to love songs When they rang of truth For three long years They have rang of pain and loss The world turned from bright to shadows My life changed […]
