Dual Nature

Born of pain

Raised by fire

Now I live

A life of opposites

Heart of a hero


To save all others

Soul of a demon


For the blood of all

Hell races through my veins

While heaven rules my heart

My actions are pure

Though my thoughts are vile

I am not what I think I am


I had several moments of depression at the beginning of the Israel trip.  It was the first time away from home and, at the time, I had terrible shyness.  The entire event triggered an identity crisis where I was trying to figure out who I really was.  Not an easy, or possibly smart, thing to do in a foreign country.

About Charles Yallowitz

Charles E. Yallowitz was born, raised, and educated in New York. Then he spent a few years in Florida, realized his fear of alligators, and moved back to the Empire State. When he isn't working hard on his epic fantasy stories, Charles can be found cooking or going on whatever adventure his son has planned for the day. 'Legends of Windemere' is his first series, but it certainly won't be his last.
