Twelve children meet
At the crossroads of destiny
Staring each other down
What are their stories?

Stuck in this void
With nothing else to do
They start talking
And tell their history

I was born into a world
Used as a plaything
When the world fell apart
I was forced to stand

I don't know what you are
And why you look so different
But I must continue on
To protect my world

I too am confused
While they look like me
Their clothes are strange
Unlike anything I've seen

I'm the cursed child
Of a devil and a woman
Yet I must find a way back
To help those who scorn me

While I'm not sure where I am
This place still feels familiar
And I feel like I've seen you all
Long ago in another life

After years of living a lie
We found our own truth
And now I fight for
The people I was taught to scorn

While I look like this now
I was once human too
I've been trained for one purpose
Which is why I must go back

To save the children
Forced into a cruel game
I will fight even if
They reject me

I'm similar to you
I was human long ago
I forgot what it was like
Yet I fake it every day

While all I've caused is pain
I'll try my best to atone
Maybe one day I can finally
Save those I cared about

I know who you are
But I'm not sure who I am
All I know is what
Other people expect

But maybe with the people
I've somehow not alienated
I can learn to be someone better
And fix my old mistakes

Honestly I'm terrified right now
This is so bizarre and scary
All I know is that at least
I can barely defend myself

At least she's here too
As long as she's with me
I can feel safe and I don't
Have to shake in fear

This whole situation is familiar
I knew this would happen again
Travelling between worlds
Is something I've done before

I've lived through so much
I'm so tired of everything
But I must continue to live
To protect those I care about

I'm new to this whole thing
I don't really understand
But many of my friends are here
So I'm sure everything will be fine

I was nothing against my sisters
I'm pretty much a worthless boy
But I'll still do my best to help
The world I'm useless to

This is something familiar
I've seen places like this
But only through the glass
Of the world I thought I knew

When I was at my breaking point
When I thought I was nothing
She pulled me back up on my feet
She was my new everything

I knew many of you
In the life that was a lie
I was never a friend
I'm nothing but a parasite

It looks like even when I ran
People will try to save me
And that's why I'm facing again
The boy I both loved and hated

I've seen many of you in pictures
Either idolized or desecrated
I don't know which one is right
As everything is currently uncertain

Just because of my abilities
I'm considered less of a person
While I hope to make a change
I first have to survive the next day

After they're done talking
The twelve awkwardly stare
What are they supposed to do
Stuck in an endless void?

Suddenly someone speaks
Finally here to explain
How their paths were intertwined
And their destiny has finally arrived

You are the first You are the last You are the present You are the past You are my soul You are my light You are my life raft You are my knight New mercies each day You have given to me Because of You I believe Even though I miss the mark And sin pulls us Farther apart You make me strong You never let me go I know this because You love me so.

There are two things I Will never forget from that night: The horrible screams of people Running from their plight and The tears running freely Down my face. They told us nothing was wrong, Although their eyes were wide with fear. “Listen to me!” my father said, “Everything will be alright, Dear.” But the tears were running freely Down my face. “The ship’s unsinkable! This must be some mistake!” My mother’s face was grim And her hands began to shake. And the tears ran freely Down her face. I stepped into the lifeboat Not wanting to believe. I cried out to my father. He wasn
