A Warrior's Tale Poem

One of our first featured poems comes from Jackie Cannon, writer of science fiction and fantasy short stories, poetry and novels, as well as creator of Anuwai Publishing. 


A Warrior's Tale

A time comes when fear and despair rule
when hope and prayer can do nothing
for those who still wish to believe in such things

A world torn apart by wars, hunger and greed
a race of beings battered and abused
worn down by the days of continuing strife

The malicious rule while the weak suffer
the manipulating feed on the fears of the pitied

Out of those who are conquered
one has eyes that begin to see

Out of those who are controlled
one has ears that begin to hear

Out of those who are lifeless and without fire
one has a mind that begins to wonder
