The road before you is perilous
What lies beyond the fog is dangerous
Legends of creatures ever so treacherous
Shall you choose to be cautious or adventurous?
Nothing can truly prepare you for this journey
You pray that the gods may show you mercy
Your hands shake as your heart fills with worry
Shall you be triumphant or return on a gurney?
Something just moved in the trees,
You hope that it was only the breeze
Yet your uncertainty brings you to your knees
Shall you be courageous or will you seize?
You pick yourself up from the ground
Your eyes frantically dart around
When you hear a shrill shrieking sound
Shall you venture forth or stay bound?
There will always be menaces lurking in the mist
Beasts that sneer, growl and hiss
No matter where you turn, the horrors persist
Shall you be controlled or will you resist?
Shall you play the game or keep the scores?
Shall you run or crawl on all fours?
Shall you hide your scars or bare your sores?
At the end of it all, the choice is yours
