Short Poem from My Novels

This is one of three poems that appeared as the introductions to my Hidden Kings Trilogy, representing inspired prophecies about the characters and events in the salvation-history of my fictional world.

Pathways of Mercy

Words I speak,
Words of truth,
Words of wonder for the world.
Watch the star,
Watch the end,
It comes upon us now.
The bright and fearsome circle
Of all our little lives
Will turn around again.
The Star King’s breath,
The Star King’s sword,
Will wake upon the world—
And blade for blade,
For life, for death,
For life that never ends.
Watch and wait,
And laugh with me,
When Warlent’s heirs make rise,
For the final bearer of the sword
Will be the bearer of new life.
