Forged from the souls of the bravest of men
They are tempered in the flames of eternal war
Ever will they stand against the tides of evil
For the dark shall claim no more

In the burning mountains of the Dragonkin
It is Man who swore a sacred oath
For in exchange for the Dragon's blood
Man must now protect them both

I speak of the legends; these Gods of battle
Warriors clad in suits of steel
They come as champions of a greiving world
And all shall learn to kneel

But not in supplication, nor out of dominance
We kneel in reverence of the bringers of light
These warriors imbued with the Eternal Flame
Shall chase the shadows of night

No more will the creatures of the swirling Nether
Defile the stability of our hearts and our homes
Today we stand as men of freedom
For our lives are now our own

Yet this is also a sombre day
One that is marked by the scar of grief
For some have not survived the change
But at least their pain was brief

But think not of those who have given their lives
For they have already gone in grace
Look instead toward our living champions
The hope for our race!

They are gifted in strength, with bodies of stone
They cannot be broken by weapon or threat
They wield the power of the Dragons themselves
It is an oath we do not regret

I am proud to call them 'Fire Drakes'
In honour of the deity we hold so dear
For these are the children of Serogar
And they shall know no fear...

"Unto the flames, into the Inferno. They march with fire, Infernus Purifico!"

AUTHOR'S COMMENT:

This is the final release for Dragon Week. It should have been released on Sunday, but I'm sure you all know about the internet problems I was having, and so I'm making up for it with a release today.

Basically, I wrote it with the idea of creating a new myth and a new kind of story and this story will be released over summer break.

And as their motto goes, "Unto the Flames, Into the Inferno. We march with fire, Infernus Purifico"

See you all tomorrow :3

Ever so true, I find a girl with a stiletto heel is worse than a girl with a stiletto knife.
But seriously, I thought I was a good poet. ._. This is amazing.
