The Myth Of Dragons

What is the fiery breath of dragons but
The words of Truth we fear will burn us up?
Impenetrable hide keeps secret hidden
The arrow of their tail could point up or down

Claws to gain purchase of anything they desire
Serpentine body is their unassailable wisdom
See the wings outstretched magnificently
They glide effortlessly over hill and dale

Shape shifters, weather makers, forever made tangible
Fear them, worship them, call them, or attack them.
The spear cannot penetrate but one spot, fancy that!
Only when opposites are balanced can they connect.

Equality of ying and yang allows one to laugh and sing
They of fire and air, one holder of the blue flaming pearl
Fight forever till you realize you should surrender
Can you take it by taming yourself first? Do so and fly!
