The Oni

Thus I became Oni
I left
For all was theft
My back I turned
For I had learned
No past ones near
No longer dear
To the forest
To hear the immortal chorus
In sight of the eye
Those who had died
In silence and chant
Never the word can’t
Grasp staff of oak
The distant one spoke
That book
Fallen from tree shook
Shadows did stir
Voices I heard
Cast sight towards north
Stand now come forth
All have abandoned
Forsaken and stranded
This is why you came
You of many name
Climb the mountain high
Cast down moon from sky
The Way is in blood and sweat
The price of immortal debt
Cast away the world
Listen to the ever chord
Laughter we sing
Solemn bells we ring
To stand so alone
To stand strongly grown
Oak of the field
Ever grown shield
The Way
To never stray
Alone is the way
Alone never stray
Thus I became Oni
