Surrounded by friends, family and others.
I am Alone.
Sadness overcomes my weakened heart,
a mighty fortress that once faced great challenges
and survived great attacks,
a fortress that provided shelter to those who needed it,
a fortress that was almost impossible to storm.
Now, that fortress stands in ruins!
What had been a symbol for greatness, happiness, and joy
is now a decayed mass of sadness, grief and pain.
a young and battered warrior awaits for the new day,
but the night has just begun.
