The black Knight walks his path

In search of a truth he’ll never find

Loved by a father he cannot trust

Known by a mother he does not know


A sword of fiery red in his tight grip

The bond he depends on with his life

A Ren by name but not by birth

Torn apart by legacy and conflict


A petulant child in an adult mind

Confused by teachings

From a tyrant with a violent agenda

Equally deformed as history written


A future not yet decided

His path only half trod

An ambition not yet fulfilled

Following a dead name, Grandfather, Lord… Vader.
