Deep-set, azure eyes.
Eyes with a past you could not know.
And even if you did you would think it
indelible, impregnable, inevitable.
Eyes set in the most unlikely of faces,
Jetting out from a tanned, hard face.
This profile is tough, daunting,
the skin roughened and even virile.
With each stride I find trouble,
and in every breath there is a war.
But it makes no difference to me.
Come at me, if you even dare.
As I brush at the gleam in my mahogany hair
I turn and I find a myriad of lives.
Lives well-spent, others at quite the loss.
But such a destiny is mine to write.
I am the Chosen One.
I fight for what I believe in.
And no matter the heat, no matter the struggle
I will forever continue to fight.
