    By Darkkin

    Black imprinted upon the blistering white.
    Words, concrete and solid,
    Struggling to define an idea.
    An idea that is a thousand shades of grey.

    An idea with no single answer...
    Noble pursuit...

    Some may provide the simple definition of the words,
    The merest basis of the ideal.
    Others will list examples,
    Their embodiments of the ideals, coloring the grey...

    Situations that try the soul, break the heart.
    But is it noble pursuit...?

    Is it something as simple as truth, however bitter it might be?
    Is it a line of footprints in the snow, striking out alone,
    Or maybe the perfect, joyous laugh of a child?
    A hand reaching to catch hold...

    Simple or complex, dark or bright.
    Which is wrong, which is right?

    Mortal born and dreamer's flights, a hero's journey...
    Songs, poems, and stories told.
    Physical embodiments, the words upon a page.
    The moral of a fable, the glory of a legend.

    This Noble Pursuit we seek to define...
    Stark in its simplicity...an ability as old as time.

    Broken down unto a single, speaking word that carries us through the dark...
