There once was a land that was held away from humans that had been consumed by their greed and selfishness. It was a place hidden from the rest of the world that not even the best geologists have been able to uncover. It is a land of both the wil and strength and yet, when Kali, one of the boys uses his strength and courage against the rest of his village, he is exiled for all eternity. It had become so for him due to the unicorn, the one who he had grown to admire and also to love. Fear within the village drove those who Kali knew into seeking out the one-horned mare, but recalling the lessons he had been taught so many times before, he refused to capture and slaughter the innocent beast. And because of his love for the unicorn mare, he is pushed away from the home that he has come to know all too well. Yet, what should happen to a unicorn if she were ever to fall in love with a human? It would be impossible due to the fact that humans are what had sent her into such a small space, also being those who destroy her, won't they?
Bending her front legs,
The unicorn dips the end of her horn into the pool of water,
Golden ripples growing away from it,
Purifying the water of poison.
Many say that one good turn deserves another,
But this cannot be said for the unicorn,
For as the ripples move away from her,
The bounce off of the banks surrounding the pool.
Ripples clash against one another,
Hiding her good deed from all who were not watching,
Leaving her with little hope as the sound of footsteps approach her.
A group of humans see her beside the silvery pool of water,
Listening to her story of kindness with lost belief,
They throw ropes around her neck,
Raping her of that very special horn.
Years pass and they learn about the unicorn’s secrets,
Reflecting upon how unjust they had been to her,
And now all unicorns have vanished because of that,
But her death shall always be remembered.
And how we humans now live alone,
Looking toward our imaginations to what remain of the lovely unicorn.
The unicorn, Kali thought to himself, looking to the mare as she walked into a clearing of trees, only a few hundred feet away from him. His heart raced as his sight went blurry and yet he did not move, wishing not to frighten her or to give the unicorn any reason not to trust him. So long he had waited to see her since that day of their parting, fearing to lose her once more should he have walked closer toward her without permission.
