Renewer of Hope

Horizonsighs and rising suns.
Sandstorms rage. Revealing stuns
then sudden steps to larger worlds
with swords of light as vision hurls
your eyes toward unknown destiny
to save a princess - galaxy -
discovering an enemy
relates in ways you must accept
as you reflect, become adept,
until you can defeat the dark,
redemptive love your secret spark
that casts a demon toward its doom
and spares a soul while fires fume,
returning once this journey's done
a victor in more ways than one
as celebrations, friends, and hosts
attended by familiar ghosts
cheer on as fears and battles cease
restoring balance and a peace,
serenity to every star,
because you choose to brave this far,
renewing hope as heroes should,
increasing faith in all that's good.
