Steadfast – Writing 101 #15

(c) in medias res by Melinda Kucsera

“Faithless is he that says farewell when the road darkens.”
— J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring

Steadfast

When the road darkens will you stand with me?
‘Neath threatening skies will you run beside?
Towards storm clouds hurling lightning, come with me.
‘Cross restless seas, down cresting waves we’ll slide.
When trouble threatens my bow’s unlimbered,
my arrow’s knocked and my aim’s true; for through
it all I’ll stand with you, ‘gainst angry birds
or demon hordes, or monsters that chew.
When the road darkens will you stand with me?
Or will you lose your faith and run away?
Will I be wishing your back a godspeed?
Will you stand at the brink with me for days
crouched and waiting for He Who Can’t Be Named
your shaft aimed at the Thing that can’t be tamed?

Since I already wrote posts based on all of the prompts I’ve been given by my wonderful followers, I ended up using one of the quotes provided for this assignment.
