This World of Men

- Dinledhwen
A Last Elf Poem

There is no place in this world of men
For someone like myself
The last remnant of the elvish race
Left here in Middle-earth.

So now I’m forced to dwell in shadows
Forever I must hide
While our allegiance to each other
Fades from their minds with time.

Oh how my heart longs for my kindred
And for the days gone by
When I could walk out in the sunlight
Fearless amongst man kind.

But the passage of time can’t be stopped
Nor the changes it brings
So I must endure my lonely life
Now in this world of men.
