Fighting for the Future

I’ve been on such a rollar-coaster lately, I think I’m starting to lose sight of who I really am. What I know, is that I must stick to this path that I walk, because I believe that it will lead to happiness. But with so much pain encompassing the journey so far it is becoming hard to bear. I have support, and I am thankful for those who are not trying to sway my determination, because I’m making strides in myself as a person.

I think it helps to find someone special to you to help you through those hard times, as obvious as that sounds. I’ve been trying to find something for me, besides various pictures or moments. And I think I’ve settled on the extract below from J.R.R Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings: Return of the King. The novel, not the movie, however if you’ve seen the movie it sorta gets turned into a monologue by Samwise Gamgee.

“Far above the Ephel Duath in the West the night-sky was still dim and pale. There, peeping among the cloud-wrack above a dark tor high up in the mountains, Sam saw a white star twinkle for a while. The beauty of it smote his heart, as he looked up out of the forsaken land, and hope returned to him. For like a shaft, clear and cold, the thought pierced him that in the end the Shadow was only a small and passing thing: there was light and high beauty for ever beyond its reach.”

Something about it stirs something in me. All I know, is that this shadow will pass. And when that time comes, I’ll be ready.
