Like an ancient wheel, it rides unsteady in their hands,
This thing reflecting the four souls,
as if the axle piercing it was not really true,
from black to lightest pink the jewel glows
touched for good or ill by many wants,
the war goes on without and still the jewel knows
the fight forever within.
Good balances with evil only for awhile,
Light overcomes the night, briefly, too.
Night tries to eat the morning sun,
but sun arises once again, black sky to blue.
Human hearts, touched by purity still strive
Against human hearts corrupted, humans who
choose the darkness, and become something different,
Midoriko! Brought low by hanyou hand,
binding there the fight forever more
Inside a jewel that shatters in its fight,
that tests the ways of love down to the core.
Is there rest for you, O purifying slayer?
Is there a way out of that locked door?
Or is the combat there to last forever?
Do not wish upon that jewel without knowing
only the right wish will end the plight
And free the miko wrapped in battle ever
And let her soul walk into that bright light.
A miko fought and sealed a hanyou heart,
A miko was destroyed by hanyou fight,
A miko seeks to rescue that poor jewel from its fate
And with her Hanyou protector make things right.
Will the axle be balanced and the souls set free?
