The sun was rising from afar
The horizon seemed aflame
A gust of wind propelled my sail
Just enough to keep me sane

The lonely waters stirred a bit
I felt a sudden chill
And then I heard a shrieking sound
That made my heart go still

From the depths of the ocean void
Came a storm of waves and mist
I thought of home, thought of my dogs
And the girl I never kissed

Finally, that thing appeared
Comparable to none
Majestic, loud, gargantuan
Its head eclipsed the sun
And our eyes met

My sight fades
My screaming stops
I reach enlightenment
And then I plunge

Into the undefined
It's a hell I can't describe

The creature had submerged itself
With me, still skin and bone
Down we went until we reached
Its master on his throne

He said he was the overlord
Of the seas and islands here
From below, he ruled above
His fiend commanded fear

I told him that I'd like to leave
And return to my own land
Bwahaha, he said aloud
This chasm never ends

But go ahead, run off, farewell
I'll even arm you with a blade
Five minute start before my pet
If you're truly not afraid
And so I swam

Why was that my choice
I'm no braver than my voice
I can hear its cry
I will surely die

The demon is now dead
I see the surface just ahead
A familiar shore I greet
My trial is complete
