A shadow falls across the hall,
backlighting themes aligning into strange patterns.
The forest floor echoes those whispers,
two brothers alone together,
power and strength as a completed team,
shadow and panther.
The dim light of a flame
flickers in the eyes of the one,
the other trained on the back of his brother,
respect and fear mingle together,
blend with determined grit.
The goal is godhood,
the price – a life.
