The Rage and The Ring

With them, how can one's heart sing?
They go hand in hand
yet one crossed with them over the land
Your dear heart how did it withstand
you held them in you trembling hand
Sometimes The Rage and The Ring would win
against you they committed every sin
Beaten, bruised, and wounded you continued on
defying its power
you almost gave in as the prisoner of the Tower
From there you bore them once again
following the journey to whatever end
Your will removed no hope remained
your soul it almost gained
Yet another ripped them from you
from there he bid his final adieu
Back to you memory came
but the wounds received could not be tamed
So Into the West you went
where you were forever freed from any lament
At peace with your soul
thanks for making the world whole.
