That Mad Rad Tale – Ryu Matsuyama

No monsters, no devils,
magic creatures
Neither wizards, neither heroes
Only a man
walking every day the same way
familiar place,
towards the same destination

Oh man where your will is gone?

Not an answers, not even a sigh
Just looking down
the dry cold concrete road avoiding the crowd
But something is still burning in the heart of him,
a melody continuously ringing in his ears


Then suddenly
as though he had remembered something,
pulling off all the clothes he was accustomed to wearing
“Bring me the sword, the heavy shield
the magic rod, then to field!
The time is come.
The time to start again a new Tale”

“Don’t worry, let’s go”
