Birthright

Birthright


From far away
he had traveled
back to the place
from whence he came
His life since unraveled
 
Retribution necessary
for a devastating wrong
He had suffered greatly
many moons ago
Now he must be strong
 
Here to face his adversaries
and reclaim what is his alone
His birthright and 
the crown of the land
Now he will retake his throne

    Redemption, I like how you tied the moon in, and making good use of the visual.
