Kill or bake

The hands were once taught
to wield the power of pain
to torture each and all
that defame my master’s name.
But that was in the past
when the one to command
was as cruel as anyone could be
one who wanted to rule the world
by force of lot of dark magic.
I have no guilt of the tales old,
I did exactly what I was told.
But the new master now I have
he loves to cure and heal,
him I understand not yet
when he talks of only peace.
I only know I am bound to him
and can not refuse what he asks
since am forever bound to his will
but making bread is one hard task.
The dough must be done perfect
I must now know when its baked
and the flavors for seasoning,
just like I knew the ways to pain
And I must also learn to wait
for the bread to be soft and light
like once I was taught of torture,
of darkness ruling human mind
I sure like this new life of mine
And more the man who rules me
even if I have yet to show my care
except baking as good as him.

This poem is inspired by one of the character – The “Mord Sith” in the  “Sword of Truth” series am reading [ completed 5 books in last one year]

    1. Every book i read uncovers a layer of the characters – some thing i can not do well in my writing. Hope i could still tell you lot more about Mord Sith !

  1. Interesting, a poem after a fantasy book character. Nice story like it is and yet maintaining the lyrical quality. Nicely done. By the way, I am also into fanatast fiction. Not read Terry Goodkind yet though. Planning to sometime soon. Incidentally my latest peom is called sword of truth. I though it was an original idea. But now I seem to think the name of Terry Goodkind’s book may have been in the back of my mind.

  2. You had me wondering about your background for a minute there. It turned into an interesting poem once I realized it wasn’t part of an autobiography. A great use for the prompt.

    1. lolz ! Me and voilent .. No way !! not like this .. Mord Sith have been said to have a very painful training phase .. will some day write about it .. Am deeply touched by this character ..

  3. gentle hands that bake bread are also trained to take life. what an irony.

    incidentally, sounds like libyan leader gadhafi is a fan of these fantasy novels. the mord-sith must have been the inspiration for his amazonian guards.
