LET'S TAKE THE TIME TO TALK THIS THROUGH,
THE WORDS WILL OUT AND SHALL RING TRUE.
 
TAKE PRIDE THEN READ WHAT'S WRITTEN HERE,
SURRENDER YOURSELF TO YOUR INNER FEAR.
 
OUR TALE TAKES PLACE IN THIS CIRCLE OF HELL,
WITH SECRETS NOW SHARED AND A STORY TO TELL.
 
IT STARTED WITH HATRED AND HERE IT WAS BRED,
A POET LEFT DYING THOUGH NOW HE IS DEAD.
 
A TRAGEDY GREAT FOR HE SUFFERED THE MOST,
ABUSED BY THE DEMON, THE EVILS TRUE HOST.
 
THOUGH SOME WERE SUCKED IN AND MADE TO CHOOSE SIDES,
THE TRUTH WAS OBSCURED WHERE THE DEMON RESIDES.
 
THE OUTCOME WAS WICKED AND BOTH WERE CAST OUT,
THE FOLLOWERS KNOWN AND TRULY DEVOUT.
 
NOW SEEN AS THE DEMON THE POET WAS JUDGED,
THE TRUTH WAS NOW RUINED, TATTERED AND SMUDGED.
 
WITH KNOWLEDGE NOW LEARNT THE POET GAINED GROUND,
THOUGH HIS TRUTH WAS DISCARDED HIS PURPOSE WAS FOUND.
 
HIS STRENGTH GREW FROM WRITING, HIS SKILLS GAINED A VOICE,
HE FELT HE COULD STOP BUT HAD MADE HIS CHOICE.
 
KNOWING HIS PATH HE SET OUT ON HIS WAY,
SPREADING THE WORDS TO THIS VERY DAY.
 
DEAD TO THE WORLD HE FOUGHT ON WITH PRIDE,
HE KNEW HE WAS BATTLING FOR THE RIGHT SIDE.
