CAEL: realization

I dare not tell you where to go,
only ask you to remember
that home is where your heart is
and to that home is where I will go –

When you came home
the legends began to unfold,
and I will admit I was envious
of the name you had created

But when I watched you tell your stories
with a tired eye and half a smile
it dawned on me that you did not create that name
you were given it, thrust upon you

The world was not off your shoulders,
no, faalen, I had been wrong –
you had saved us all
and no one had saved you.

From the POV of Cael Ainthait.
