STORMQUEEN

by Kyrl Freeman

I was born when the lightning flashed
And fire slashed the mountain fort
The clouds over Aldaran:
Dark storm's the fountain: doomed court.

I am the lightning rider
The power in the eye of the storm
I am the feared destroyer
I am the child of doom.

Though they knew that power was mine
Lady fine, laran untold
For statecraft my father made
For Aldaran's maid of gold...

Though I am the lightning rider
The fire in the eye of the storm
I am the feared destroyer
I am the child of doom.

My father made with his kin
contract in the word of law
That I should married be, but
Frightened, the sword cut: they saw

That I am the lightning rider
The girl in the eye of the storm
I was Darren's destroyer
I am the child of doom.

Though the years my laran grew
Reason too was affected
No leronis could hold me
My safety was protected.

For I am the lightning rider
The mind in the eye of the storm
I will be my own destroyer
I am the child of doom.

But war came to Aldaran
My laran bringing dark doom
Upom our fierce enemies;
Lightning, singing, built their tomb.

Now I am the lighting wielder
The warrior, the queen of the storm
I was Scatthfell's destroyer
I am the child of doom.

None could hold back the storm then
The fire then flamed undying
To sleep they set me ever
The storm forever ceasing.

I was the lightning rider
Caught in the eye of the storm
I was my own destroyer
I am the child of doom.
