Somberly I sit
In the dim light of this room
for a sign from this my tomb.
In the shadow stands my deepest fear,
As if to loom in candles light…
Awaiting my last hour,
My fight, or final flight.
For in that desperate moment,
When it all comes crashing down…
For fate has finally found me,
It is there, I shall stand my ground.
