The Fire, Roaring
All the good beings of Middle-Earth were counting on him, to do the unthinkable, the unbiddable, the impossible. Frodo was physically exhausted, spiritually blind, but not morally bankrupt. The pain would not conquer; he would accomplish this last journey. Not a quest to find and return, but only a last task to perform.
At the end of all things, Frodo stood high above the Cracks of Doom, now determined to throw the golden trinket in. But he had not reckoned with the pain of longing for the power of the One Ring. It swept over him and he was lost.
