"When the wise falter..."
"For Frodo the Halfling, it is said... took on himself the burden, and alone with his servant he passed through peril and darkness..."
From "The Silmarillion" by JRR Tolkien
Simple tale of little folk Endurance and undying hope Step by step, hand in hand Travel through a shattered land War is raging, battles waged Warriors wield sword and blade Cities crumble, towers fall Still they plod toward Mordor's wall Single purpose, steady path Hold each other to the task Set aside mundane desire Enter halls of shade and fire Fierce resolve and weary toil Rancid water, rocky soil Protective hand and strong embrace Moments blessed with shining grace Never wavering from the goal Guarding close each other's soul Lift the light of hope above Step by step in steadfast love.
