Star Wars Meta – Should Ben Solo/Kylo Ren be redeemed? No freakin’ way!

Star Wars is Poetry – “The Balance”

Star Wars is Poetry – here is a poem I put together using Rey and Kylo Ren/Light and Dark/The Balance of the Force as inspiration. Hope you like it!

We found our way to heaven

As darkness rises
In your light, I shall hide

that saved me, that saved me
In that moment
lost in time’s embrace
We found our way to heaven
