Unbreakable I have lived through soul-shattering storms.
I have walked through fields of Fire and Blood,
the scars I carry still.
I have been thrown into the depths of the Ice,
And survived only to carry the Frosted-Spirits with me.
I have been thrown into the path of violence alone, left to fight my way out and survived to see another day.
I have been the Leader of others,
tasked to be trusted for their lives.
Only to see some never return home.
I have been the bringer of Death, Sorrow and Pain, a task that destroys the Mind and Spirit of many,
yet I am still here.
Though the faces and terrors of what I have done, Who I was still come calling in the Darkest of Nights,
I find a way to carry on.
Though I Live everyday with the Monster within, I trust in myself to keep it at bay.
I am not ashamed of who I am.
Regrets I have plenty but the Past will always remain as is.
Years in solitude gives a Man of my experiences time to think, To reflect on our past Deeds.
It makes one wonder a great many things.
The choices I made for myself and for those who trusted my leadership Perhaps one of my complications is meant to walk The Spiritual Path alone.
At least, until otherwise deemed fit to be among those Who can truly accept me for who I am, and once was.
I make no apologies for who I am now,
Nor will I avert who I truly am and the Gods and Goddesses Who resonate and speak to me in ways I am only beginning to understand.
I feel they have kept me alive and guided me my entire life.
For what purpose I know not and though they are the Gods and Goddesses Most fear and even hate, they have shown me love.
So be that as it is, I will remain steadfast in who I am, and never apologize for what I believe.
If this means remaining as I am today,
Then it is as it is meant to be.
My Code of Honor is as unbreakable As my Mind, Body and Soul have proven to be.
