Dragon's Prayer

O Lord, who made the dragon, and the dragon's open sky,
And gave to me a dragon's soul; a dragon's urge to fly--
Let me dance within your cloudscapes far beyond Earth's chain,
Let me rejoice in my grandeur, let me not grow vain!
Let me vindicate my honor with my fang and claw,
Let my raging heart show mercy, let that show no flaw!
Let me have the joy of all the shining gold I've stored,
Let no pauper-dragon go forth starving from my hoard.
And, Lord, should the need arise and I be called to fight,
Dragon-Maker, make me victor, and, God--help that knight!

* Update (Aug 2012): Had a nice note from a website visitor--

"...There are more than just traditional dragons out there. That's right I just said that. There are people whose lives are centered around Dragons called Dragonkin who not only know of the existence of dragons but also believe they are/were/should-have-been dragons and several of them have been using "The Dragon's Prayer" for a little over ten years. It wasn't submitted as an original but more of an actual prayer for these guys. Anyways enough with the information overload, I'll let you decide what you think of the Dragonkin.

May your pen never run dry, and may you follow your dreams ever where they take you. ~ A.A."
