The onus of discovery alleviated from the eyes
Born in darkness, the hero knows only courage
Robust and vigorous, swift as the titans’ stride
Unto the ailing nations, sworn a protector’s pledge

It is not for the hero to decide
Nor relent against scores to slay
Cleaving paths as righteous men divide
And cunning devils place valor on display.

Everlasting war calls to the valiant
Such glories demand the demise of fated enemies
In blindness, the intrepid one cannot recant
Unable to see the faces of the tyrants he swore to appease.

Cacophonous cries resounding
Triumphant conscripts surrounding
The bellow of broken minds
Injured, beaten, and blind.

Forgotten in the chemical flames
Disfigured countenance in the frame.
All are sightless in the battlefield haze
Such are the benevolent nations’ ways.

The onus of discovery alleviated from the eyes
Born in darkness, the hero knows only death
Stalwart and obedient; adjuration misguides
A legend condemned to destroy until his final breath.
