Blackest before the Dawn – written by zerowon – Narrated by JLWChambers
Hello everyone, this is Asclepius. This is a great poem written by zerowon, entitled Blackest before the Dawn. It is brought to us by our special guest narrator JLWChambers. Background music “Soliloquy” by Matthew Pablo, at www.matthewpablo.com.
T’is truly the end when light fades to black,
T’is truly the end when there’s no going back,
So swallow your fear and gather your pride,
Grasp on some courage and prepare for the tide.
The battle is lost yet the war’s just begun,
Masking the battle by setting the sun,
Twilight beckons the night to return,
Illuminated ashes where bodies once burned.
T’is blackened times in Novia now,
Thousands of mortals take hero some vows,
For now they know t’is past the hour,
To right the land of the wrongs that devour.
The scorching of earth,
Dead children at birth,
No cleansed souls,
No body of worth.
For now is the time,
to undo what is wrong,
The end of all virtue,
The end of this song.
So rise now heroes,
Of this I implore,
Fight for a land,
We all shall restore.
Before I am gone,
Its always the blackest,
Before you see dawn.
