Welcome
To my Newborn Home
You can't break it in.
I made it strong.

Here be dragons,
Here be myth.
Here be darkness,
Here be breath.
But here be death.

Not hardest steel.
Not hottest coal.
They all flail
against my wall.
Try to break me.

Not fear.
Not even cold.
They all crack.
But I hold strong.
Try to break me.

But try and die.
My end is near.
So lend your fear.
And welcome
To my
Newborn Home.
