There’s a warrior with a painted face
and streaks of black across his chest; he stands
wild with pride. His merciless eyes ignited by the
echoes of fallen enemies. He slew
two hundred men and just scars mark their defence.

There’s a warrior with a painted face
who prays to gods mightier than he; he kneels
arms open to implore. He calls upon his army
to pray with him; equals once more. He watches
embers burn before retiring to his tent.

There’s a warrior with a painted face
and inside his heart rests a son and daughter
sleeping. There is a reason he is
a warrior.
Day 4 napo- not at all watching game of thrones :)

I know today is another ears will ring, you'll understand how we remember you again, miss. Your hands tremble, your eyes will be on the roads, you'll feel what I feel in my heart!
