Geometry challenge: Proof - ' Orison to the Valar' : Kortirion

Title: Orison to the Valar
Author: Kortirion
Character: Aragorn
Rating: G
Source: FotR
Disclaimer: Tolkien had his doubts – and he also has Middle-earth.

I never asked you for proof. I simply tried to be my best. I heeded your learning... and oh, how I practised the arts suitable for your ambitions - I bear the scars to prove it!

I learnt to make decisions that cost good men their lives. I learnt that our desires cannot be achieved without sacrifice, our own and those who we love... but did you have to make the sacrifice so great? When I finally had proof of who I am... did you have to rip it from me?

He only said it once... “My king...” and was gone...
