I once had two vampires very near
– one was Doubt, and another Fear.
I often dined or indulged with them,
while they lay to waste my sacred realm.
Doubt lied to me; by Fear I was betrayed.
In such poor company, from my path I strayed.
And once I was left with naught,
they abandoned me in a cell to rot.
All I stood for was set to flames.
My kingdom burned down as vampire games.
But I did not crumble; instead I arose.
Chapters begin when the old ones close.
I’d chosen friends poorly, indeed.
Now I’d awoken; my kingdom was in need.
I let go of all bonds that chained me.
And when I realize myself, I was finally free.
Out of the dark chambers I bravely strode.
Not a single moment to sulk could I afford.
I rode back to the capital; I took my stand.
I banished Doubt and Fear from my land!
