Journey To Lahja - Poem by Justin Gildow

Standing with you on the bridge
Underneath is a short jump down
Underneath are railroad tracks
Underneath is our ticket to Lahja

We hear the train coming
So we make ourselves ready
Ready to leap aboard
Ready, and if willing, to unsheathe our swords

The train passes underneath
And we leap aboard
And it turns out we're not alone
As the minions of Chaos have noticed our prescence
The leap across car after car
Ready to rush and attacks us

Unsheathing our swords
And my, do they shine sharp
We take on the minions of Chaos
One by one they go down
And we make our way to safety

As the train continues on its way
We notice we're real close to Lahja
And so we jump off the train
Rolling down
And afterwards, picking ourselves up

As it turns out
The journey to Lahja will now be much more difficult
With not only the minions of Chaos to contend with
But also the rain and the wind

Step by step
Leap by leap
And running if we have to
We get past the the minions of Chaos
And reach a point of safety

Day has turned to night
And the weather isn't any better than it was during the time we had to contend with the minions of Chaos and the rain and the wind
But in the distance stands the Tower Of Lahja
For which we both can see
We both know there's no time like the present
So we must keep moving
