Random Poem:


Indestructible, I call you
Incorruptible, adverse
You never cried, or ever lied
As the maldercon did it's worst
And you carry on regardless
Through the boiling billowing cloud
Across a world of endless snow
Where voices call your name out loud
I watched your frail phoenix rise
And crashing back into the flames
I praised her mighty valour
But I saw her charred remains
You, shrugging off your troubles
Wolves that snap, but dare not bite
Your steady steps, unfaltering
Walking on towards the light
