The darkest dark the world has ever known,
I walk toward my fate with head held high,
Although I smile I feel dread in my bones.

I know they are there I can hear them moan,
My courage is strong I stand like a rock,
The darkest dark the world has ever known.

My life has led me into this drab zone,
I am fearful of what lies in the dark,
Although I smile I feel dread in my bones.

I hear a raven squall like some old crone,
It alone understands men's foolish trials,
The darkest dark the world has ever known.

I'm up for the task; true grit I have shone.
What lies before me is why I have come.
Although I smile I feel dread in my bones.

I feel young, but I am a full grown man,
I trod on to meet this sinister test,
The darkest dark the world has ever known,
Although I smile I feel dread in my bones.

Anticipation is sometimes the mother of apprehension. I don't mind walking in the dark, just don't ask me to look under the bed. Just kidding a bit here JerryPat, but it does seem like you're preparing for that ultimate trip. You were wise not to mention taking any luggage. If you should see me on your way, I'll be the optimist with a bottle of Coppertone.

...just bein' Bluesy

Hah! Gotta love the Coppertone line, my friend. Yep. That trip was on my mind as I was writing this little ditty out. Thanks for figuring it out, Blues. You give great comments!
