I read these words posted by Jeremy Ullrsson about 1/2 hour ago as I perused his profile as a new FB friend.
They are from the script of a Tolkien fan movie "Born of Hope" set in the time before the "Lord of the Rings," telling the tale of Arathorn, father of Aragorn.
I have given them the working title of "We the Faithful" because as I read them a tune was demanded.
We came from the water,
It runs through our ancient days,
down the long years to this moment
coursing through our lives
like the bloodline of Kings
A swiftly flowing stream
of memory and sorrow
One drop of water
and then another
can become a ripple,
a rising torrent
which in time breaks down all resistance
to flow free once again
on the journey to it's destiny
The remnant of the faithful
