The One

Such age. Such wisdom. Such knowledge
He wandered why the Sage had summoned him
Led him into the Temple and spoke of his "destiny"

He? Have a destiny? Surely not
He was merely a minion. A nothing!
Why did the Sage chose him?

To learn his life was not what was intended threw him
To learn he was not what he thought scared him
Worry grew: What if he failed?

"Failure is not an option" the Sage told him
Dare he believe these words?
Why wasnt it an option?

And then his destiny became clear
The Sage knew his choice was true
For he had a strength they knew not
Such power. Such magnificence

He succeded.
And even am eternity after his death,
They raised a glass to him

No longer a nothing
Forever remembered
The One.
