Antwan

Revisiting some of my favorite characters and some fun I had trying to describe them in poetic form. Antwan is the protagonist (hero) of Tiger Claws, a YA novel.


Antwan


Born of dark night, he shows hard form

Boy whose riddle you cannot crack

Divorced from this world, he’ll not come back

But he crashes ‘pon you a fierce storm



Flint strikes fire. His spirit grows warm

The challenge is what he’ll always attack

Born of dark night, he shows hard form

Boy whose riddle you cannot crack



Foes around him come to swarm

Boy alone to slap and whack

Drive him down but he fights back

Unafraid. Fists up his norm

Born of dark night, he shows hard form

Boy whose riddle you cannot crack.
