I'm not as pure as you thought.
This has a very different plot.

You see...

The feline warrior sighed, beginning to sing her song.
I am not who I say I am
For I do have this darker part
I am not all that disciplined
Even though, I seemed so, at the start
I swore to honor The Bushido Code
It's sad to say I walk a corrupt road
That have proven to myself and it
No wonder that I still wander as Ronin
Seppuku, just won't do
I, shall, live!
For it takes real courage to admit what's wrong!

So I say, sincerely
If you can even hear me
I did not, believe or not
Meant to trick, to deceive
On my honor, what honor?
Such trust is here no longer
Just know that I had never meant to betray
In this way
I know words won't mend what is broken
Just like a shattered blade
Least I have finally spoken
I am sorry that the truth was delayed
Can you find it in your heart?
Disloyalty is not my kind of art?
I am not trying to save my own hide
But if you wish, I shall bide
Seppuku, just won't do!
Can you forgive?
For it takes even courage, to sing my song!
On my honor, such "honor"
An act of most dishonor
If you can, just understand
That I meant you no such harm
I am sorry, so sorry
For the false hope and glory
I feel ashamed, replaced my name
Now there is no Samurai
Ronin Kai

Right your wrongs
Don't take long
Communication is key
If you aren't going to be careful
You'll turn into me

Undeserving, not worthy
I was your special trophy
That you kept, on your shelf
With all the love in the world
But then one day, just one day
The cat had gone away
Without word, I do understand how much that hurt

I promise that one day, and someday
I will correct what I've done
My mistakes, mark my words
I don't care how long it takes
I will redeem, and reclaim
In honor and in name
I will rise, like an honor-bounded Samurai
Along allies

Let this be a lesson to you
Of something you should never do

I was not who I said I was
Now you finally know the truth
I will walk this road of redemption
May your own lack any deception.

This little poem is supposed to be sung/read to the tune of this one particular Okami soundtrack.

I hope you enjoy and I apologize if it seems sloppy, I never was good at poetry. Still I try.
If you feel like you don’t belong in this world, it is because you are here to help create a new one.
