Seeking a Home - A short poem about the Elves' journey to Middle-earth

I am drawn to something,
something unknown,
something I cannot avoid,
beyond my home on Valinor.
What is it I seek?

I seek a home in this place,
this place called middle-earth.
I came with the sons of Finwe,
against the will of the Valar.
Mandos spoke an unforgettable doom that day.

I did not chose to slay my kin,
to give up a happy life.
Why, o why did I leave Valinor?
To find a home in this land of middle-earth,
to fight Morgoth and await the coming of men.
