Believing Like Sam


The ring fed Frodo

scenes of failure.

Ate at his faith

in any future.

Kept him numb

To everything but

pain

and failure.



As did the Palentir

to Denethor.



Tools of despair.



What kept Sam

believing?

Delivered him eyes

that could see

ahead to home's

welcome,

and a telling of their

tale as epic...?



And

where do I find

the talisman of Sam?

And

rid myself

of the ring's voice...

poisoning my quests?
