Crests of the Baron’s Mortal Sins

Temple of Utu from Final Fantasy

Six families stood
At the peak of their world
Some kind and pure
Others selfish and cruel
Yet they worked in one circle
Maintaining balance
For good and ill

Six families danced
To greet a friend from afar
A man of strength
Risen from a life of show
Carrying scars of battles
One of which he masked
With a smile of malevolent benevolence

Six families fell
Their blood flowing
Down every hall and wall
No heirs to carry on
Devoured by history
Leaving behind the crests
That no living soul shall touch

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.

    History is so unfair, it devours the splendor of all human beings save for those who become brave enough to attain to supreme awakening, their names become cast in stone.

    Thanks for the beautiful poetry.

    • Glad you enjoyed it. History really does seem unfair and even incomplete at times. Starting to see how it changes depending on who you talk to.

        History appears to be unfair and incomplete because our earthly preferences do not resonate with our spiritual purpose. How comes long ago (thousands of years ago) people were more dependent on memory to remember the past. Many used to remember hundreds of their past lives in the present. I think we are evolving backwards as humanity.

        Only that that was not so common in the west, and history as it is very much doctored by the global elite, thus impeding important truths for humanity that could lead to a more divine existence.

        In the modern world almost everybody has been forcefully converted to paganism.
