Exile’s Song

By Karen Aldain

Many died under Thrydwulf, but this is the song for those he coerced into helping him, using threats, violence and mind control. They have taken themselves into exile, and left the Lions, for their crimes were called treason. But we do not forget them. Instead we ask you to spread this song, and tell them to go to neutral land, where Lions law does not hold sway. They can go to Bears Lands, and seek the Chieftan of Clan McAlwyn. We will be waiting there, and hopefully we will find a way to bring them home. What happened was not right, and they are as much his victims as any. No Lion stands alone, and we will never give up on them.

Our future’s gone, our path’s a ghost,
Exiles with a shadowed past.
Forced to serve, now traitors we –
The villain’s dead, and we must flee

Not forgotten, not alone,
We know a Lion’s in your heart.
Hoping for a new beginning,
Offering a place to start.

A long and lonely path ahead.
We saved our lives to live as dead.
Fugitives, we walk alone,
Dreaming of lost lands of home.

Not forgotten, not alone,
We know a Lion’s in your heart.
Hoping for a new beginning,
Offering a place to start.

Can we really start again?
New beginnings? End the pain?
One more step, another way?
Shadows lengthen into day.

Not forgotten, not alone,
We know a Lion’s in your heart.
Hoping for a new beginning,
Offering a place to start.
