173 – Dragon skin

Swords
Were not forged
To stay clean.

Dragons
Were not meant
To hold their fire.

Knights
Were not raised
To stay calm and negotiate.

But
Not all princess
Need rescue.

Some choose
To stay beside
The dragon

To grow a thick skin,
Learn how to wield a sword,
And let the fire in their hearts
Burn brightly.
