Prologue



The child was lying awake in bed awaiting his father to tuck him in and read to him till he fell asleep. His dad arrived in the room and pulled the blankets up over the child and tucked them up under the childs chin. The man pulled up a chair and sat down beside his son. He looked down at the child with a warm smile, Are you comfortable?


The child looked up at him with curious eyes, mmhmm.


Then Ill began,


The man leaned back in his chair and began to recite a poem with an almost musical tone in his voice:


A child ran through a forest,


He ran and ran into the new day.


He stopped at the sound of a chorus,


Only to find, instead, a sparkling bay.


The child smiled at the sight,


For he had found beauty.


He wished he had flight,


so that he may flee cruelty.


The chorus had stilled,


The waves faded into the distance.


The child found himself chilled,


Because in the end all that remains is silence.



The young man was aged,


Time had taken its toll.


He felt the world was caged,


But it was just his own soul.


The young man sought peace,


Only to find death.


The young man walked empty streets,


Only to find no breath.


He found life,


And found it was soft.


He tried to protect this life,


But it was lost.


The young man sought comfort,


To flee from that shiver.


The young man wished to recover,


Because in the end all that remains is a whisper.



The older man was worn,


The time and pain had taken him.


The older man could not morn,


For those who were taken from him.


           He waged battles he could not win,


           Taking losses at every end.


           His body was broken from within,


           But he continued until he could transcend.


           As the end grew near him,


           He continued and never ceased.


He knew his fate was grim,


Yet he never ceased.


The old mans time was gone,


And he passed into the new and old realm.


The old man was in a new dawn,


Because in the end all that remains


The father stopped as he realized his son had fallen asleep. He smiled at the child and bent down to kiss his son on the forehead before quietly getting up. He carefully picked up his chair and put it against the wall. He walked to the doorway and looked back at the child before turning off the lights and closing the door behind him.
