18. Journey To The Cross-Roads
We mark the stations of the cross-roads.
Storm screams at my back; my fate fawns at my feet. Still, I have grasped the hand of friendship unlooked-for; seen sunlight seek the face of faithfulness. Even our dark path once ran from the Tower of the Moon to the Citadel of the Stars… when darkness still sparkled with its own fair lights.
And the king, crowned with stars rising from the rich black earth, still watches over our path.
They cannot conquer forever!
