Unlit, unmapped, undiscovered
Begins the quest of an armored
Without shield or sword
Fate bound onward
Does the heart command
And the spirit demand

Chaos flames burn
Uncertainty begins to churn
 Stripped of protection
Lost and without direction
Stumbles the tormented soul
Bound to destiny’s scroll

Abhorrence chokes
Demons of fear provokes
Alone and incomplete
Searching with exhausted feet
Determined and predicted
A love so strongly inflicted

Precisely in the darkest moment
Attacked with the most torment
As the last of hope dies
Does the sun finally rise
The missing piece able to be found
And you know without a sound

    How terrible war is and you show it very convincingly. Good rhythm.
