Your Dying Spouse 631- The Dimholt Road

For fans of Lord Of The Rings, the Dimholt Road holds special significance; it's the road that the rightful heir to the throne of Men must take to win the allegiance of those who live 'beneath the mountain'; men who abandoned Aragon's ancetor Isildur in battlem and were condemne to a spectral existence for their treachery.

And in fighting for Aragorn, they are redeemed, and freed.

Having been forced of lae to make peace with myself through facing my own heart of darness, I wonder if perhaps the Dimholt Road is the path we all must take, to unerstand and forgive, and to bring a true chance for redemption.

Have you seen it, would you know it,
dare you take the Dimholt road?
Would you forsake iPhone and CrossFit,
bend now to a harder load?
Beneath the mountain live the traitors
who dropped their oaths and ran
abandoning honour, and all that matters
to try to live their own life-plan.
Can you reach them, devout pilgrim
and need you even bother try?
In life's complex interregnum,
are they just like you and I?
Think on your promises made and broken;
for infidels, these are your token.
