Visiting Middle Earth

We walk in a magical world
We conquer the dark
To live in the light

When catapults throw defeat
And rams batter your door!
Don't run

Stand tall
When the dragons cry
Add your roar

"There's some good
in this world
and it's worth fighting for"*

When we battle with a Samwise heart
We've won again another night
Never forget YOU possess the light

*J.R.R. Tolkien
