"Not all those who wander are lost"-J.R.R. Tolkien

The surrounding world is thrust into chaos

Flames hungrily chase the dark storms brewing overhead

Creatures and evils are eager to torment the earth

These unknown monstrosities tear through reality

The defenseless mortals struggle to resist the new viciousness

Their soulless corpses are disregarded in morbid piles

Everything that was meant to stay hidden now knows freedom

She stands alone in the midst of it all

Her pallor is enhanced by the darkness surrounding her

Her eyes say she’s disoriented and plead for pity

She knows the suffering and infection is her fault

Her hands still grip what once was a strong prison

A prison she was swore never to open as long as she lived

Pandora only closed her box when only glimmering hope was left inside.
