I was once an angel,
That you see in your dreams.
I glowed like the sun,
Warm and brilliant as can be.
I thought I had been banished,
From my home up above.
For I was sent to live,
With the mortals on their land.
My purpose was simple,
My mission was clear.
I was sent to take command of an army,
and become their worst fear.
Time past, and with it everything changed,
Things grew old and new things were born.
But I stayed the same and will forever more,
as I watched the ones I loved die and felt like my heart was torn.
I wanted to die,
And move on through the light.
But something had stopped me,
That was near in the future just out of sight.
So I stayed and did my duty,
That I was sent down to complete.
Until one day I came across,
People like me.
I got to know them and they accepted me for me,
and I joined them in their fight.
To go out into the world and be the best we can,
And to become rulers of the night, where we are meant to be.
