You chose peace over the darkness,
you offered up some hope to a world
lost within its bloody escapades
and endless cycles of retribution.
You chose simplicity and
unraveled your opponents by the
strength of your will and the
sheer power of numbers.
You chose a path where
compassion reigns and
love is the insurmountable
lever of change.
The human world was not ready then
to follow your guiding steps
to a better place,
it is not ready now
so inured are we to the
alluring potency of the sword that
brings us nothing but grief.
