White Lotus

I’ve been waiting for 800 years
I’m willing to wait 800 more
For my Crown Prince
His Highness, White Lotus
My beloved who I adore

He who answered this child’s prayers
With a response foolish yet brave
His words deserved to be engraved in stone
As he was unaware of the child he saved

Shall my White Lotus fall from grace
Without a doubt, this soldier will rise
To fight for him
To live for him
For he is the only purpose of my life

Everyone who ever spat out shame
This devil’s incarnate will knock on their door
Here for revenge
On behalf of White Lotus
An oath I sincerely swore
