We are many, We are Legion... But we are still, only one.

Was the reply to the begging, to stop all the horrors that had begun.

Atheists say you pray to nothing, or that your God does not hear.

Your God does hear, which is what theists both hope, and fear.


Be it a God among angels, or a God among devils, or a God among men.

They are still only one God, even with the strength of ten men.

They would not be able to stop these horrors, keep them at bay.

Because every God falls trying, and most die where they lay.


One man alone, One God alone, Or Legion, alone.

They would still be helpless, for they are on their own.

I know this, yet I stand tall, a hero for you all.

I am on my own, yet I am proud, and I stand tall.


I am a hero, and I will spread my wings far and wide.

I will look after you all, I will help you, and be your guide.

Everyone fails, when they are on their own.

But I am the one who will do it alone.

I am not saying I'm better than God or Legion or Alexander The Great or anything.
So don't get all flame war on me :|
I'm just saying that heroes give in and give up, Gods fall and die on their own.
But I'm not giving up, I will look after you all, and I shall do it alone.

Very powerful to say the least!

The last stanza really completes it. The boldface is an interesting touch, but somehow I feel it's a bit unnecessary... The words do a really good job emphasizing themselves.
I was going to have it in italics, but I couldn't.
It was just so you'd know it was ME saying it instead of imagery or Legion.

A defiant and relentless piece. That's all I can say I guess.

No worries.

You're really prideful, you know that? But I still wish you the best of luck in your quest.
