Advancement: Shadow Dancer



Shadow Dancer


I won’t call my life of hiding in darkness
fate or destiny or make it
sound any nicer than it is.


I won’t say it’s beautiful like the primrose
that blooms at midnight.
We know ourselves best. Our hands are already stained in blood,
and our scars run deep from the burden of our sins.


But do not forget.
You are the ones who called for us.
You are the ones who created us.


Those who do not acknowledge their sins 
will suffocate in their own karma.
We will watch from the shadows
and see how long you will remain in the light.


- Words from a nameless Shadow Dancer
