Thoughts of a Dragon
Why How Many Dragons Do You Know?

Why How many dragons do you know?

What do you mean, my dear one
how I am not at all like a dragon
you, who have only met me so far

How would you know a dragon czar?
Or maybe a Missionary that writes of my kind
well meaning but far from the truth in my mind

Might it be that your imagination runs wild?
And decides we are not what we seem to be child?
Never mind you don't actually look for the truth
you just assume you know and this you choose.

Dreaming of dragons is a pastime for you
realm of your fantasy world of blue
and I as a dragon don't fit that paradigm
glossed over as we are by layers of time
opinions of we dragons are always formed
notwithstanding you were forewarned
sustaining this is not what you have learned

Despite this, you know you have earned
our respect in the fields of battle and beyond

Your intuition will build the sacred bond
of and between yourself and the likes of me
understanding as we do that you can see

Knowledge of the future hangs heavily in the air
now we need to get before the people that share
our bloodlines through our heart that we give freely
with those we choose to help as we care deeply.
