Which path will you chose

Long ago

Knights of the old
Defended a principle
An idea long lost forgotten

A code was laid down
To follow and guide
Many were the virtues
Long was the road

Honor must be defended
At all cost
So must the weak
And the less fortunate
Dragons must be slain
Damsels must be destressed

Better to die defending a principal
Then giving up what you stand for

So were the Knights duties

As for now

Where only the idea survived
And the practice has almost but died out

It is you that needs be defending
As the self-centered gratification has taken over
And thrown all virtues in the garbage

Where you are the highest in need
And all is done to fill that hole
We become blind for others
And put Our desires before Their dignity

Better to have regret
then remorse
