Haunted

People know me as the Hero of Time.
I am a symbol of light for them all.
Even after these years, I still don't feel
That I was the right person for this at all.

I may seem to be strong and fearless,
But that is only on the outside.
On the inside, each battle; each death
Has had an impact on my soul.

I remember the first time I killed a creature
When trying to save the Great Deku Tree.
I killed a plant that was blocking my way,
Just acting as it was supposed to be.

Now, years later, I am haunted by each kill.
Each creature that I stole life from
Has never left my mind.
They always will be there.
