NaPoWriMo 2015 ~ From My Point of View

Stanzas alternating between Anakin’s and Obi-Wan’s perspectives, repsectively. Inspired by reading and then watching The Revenge of the Sith. Title inspired by Anakin’s line: “From my point of view, the Jedi are evil!”

April 13, 2015 ~ From My Point of View


You turned her against me. 

You fed lies into her mind. 

You took away my beloved.

You slowly turned her blind.

You pushed her from you. 

You lived a lie with every word. 

You destroyed your beloved. 

You left with her pleas unheard. 

You are deluded and confused. 

You are the ruin of us all. 

You set me against my friend. 

You are the cause of freedom’s fall. 

You have been horribly lied to.

You have chosen to trust the dark.

You were deceived by your friend;

You fed the monster in your heart. 

I am powerful beyond belief, 

I am but a shadow of my youth. 

I am lord, proud ruler, satisfied. 

I am empty as I trade lies for truth.


I am nameless, scorned, unknown. 

I am nothing like what I used to be.

I am humble, poor, surrounded by sand. 

I am protecting a boy who will set me free.


I am beyond hope, utterly lost. 

I am unlovable, traitor to my friends.

I am broken, dying, but finally free.

I am saved at last, with my son at the end.

I am facing my death with no way to win. 

I love my foe like I do no other.

I am saving him even as I die. 

I am reunited with my brother.
