The Burning Wall... isn’t it beautiful?
As one of the steps I once walked with her, this place will always hold a special place in my memories.
I’ve always loved how the waterfalls and the blue sky merge with the orange crystals that have made their home among nature and created a majestic chimera deep within the arid landscape of Thanalan.
Our flag waved strongly with those same colors, a symbol of contrasting values becoming one and the same to empower the ones that raised said flag with pride and passion.
Out of a tragedy born from the malice that lingers in this star, fragments of a wicked plan have given us several dreamlike places that are testaments of how, even from the darkest of times, light will always prevail, showing us a sign to never give up and to keep going forward.
The Burning Wall... what a fitting name for a place that represents the essence of my journey.
A disastrous downfall that sent the warrior into a downward spiral, shards still falling and making the climb up a monumental task which seemed like a lost cause. With his axe in one hand and tired from all the pain he endured, he fell back and closed his eyes, letting the ever-growing coiling vines that would keep him prisoner of a harrowing penance drain his vitality away, but an echo from above helped him snap out of his grieving surrender. A familiar voice that could soothe his innermost demons and lead the way, to give newfound meaning, one that caressed his soul with a song of hope.
My heart is aflame and stronger than ever after the panacea that was given to me, a gift I didn’t deserve, but one that I accept and value with every breath I take.
The ascent won’t be easy, but I am determined to get back to that place where our colors become us, and this time I’ll continue building upwards, shutting this hellish place for good and leaving the poison that comes with it behind.
It won’t be fast, it won’t be easy, but nothing worth it ever is... and this is one task I’ll see completed for it will lay the foundation of a future I intend to make as bright as her soul, the star I follow when I’ve lost my way.
