Where are your gods now (a tale)

An evil emperor of foreign lands
one day docked on calmer waters
Scorched the earth destroyed greens
Butchered animals, enslaved people

Then put them under his boots and screamed
Tell me where are your gods now
One child had the courage
No fear in those deep black eyes

Looked at him and simply said
If you keep doing this, you will be dead
Emperor got angry took boy to task
Got his sword and tell him to ask

For forgiveness to his mighty sin
Child was fearless, replied with a grin
If you can’t make me do what I am told
Think how much power you really hold

Humanity is not here because gods made it so
Fortitude, courage, desire to grow
These same people, you pillage and ruin
If had a good heart their souls you can win

Power you crave is nothing more than a dream
The day you are weak, you will die in screams
Adopt humanity and live amongst us
You will be remembered, immortality thus

Quite unbelievable, emperor took his advice
Released all people, gave them back their lands
Begged forgiveness, for his torture and his vice

If a child’s fortitude, can get a nation through
What are you waiting for,
Go for your dream, make it true!

Alert

Every moment life changes
Observe, reflect and react
don’t worry much about rumours
be very ready to act on a fact
Have courage to go against the tide
Peers not to admire, elders will chide
have fortitude to stay the course
Loneliness not deter nor does force
Pioneers pains are many never few
May the force be always with you!
