and my heart finds me

by Jan 27, 2004Poetry


Death I see it
in the eyes of the others
as the door is
being knocked down

I try to remember
the days of peace
but there is none.
All I can remember is
war and death

the wizard calls
“hold your places men”
hold my place
it goes through my head
I try to do just that but
my mind says “GO! do not stay,
do not die”

yet my heart screams
“STAY! SOLDIER OF
MINAS TIRITH
STAY AND FIGHT
TO THE DEATH”
I strive to listen to my heart

the door now gone
trolls come through,
I fight as my heart says

the wizard calls again
“to the second level”
I give into my mind for an instant

then I here a scream
and my heart finds me
protecting a mother and a child
I get them to the second level

yet I stand and fight still
the door closes I still fight
my sword stand with blade

I plunge into the orcs
a moment of pain
then I see a white beach
and find days of peace
I here a voice it says
“Well done soldier of Minas Tirith”
