The Words of the Dead – A Halo Poem


We are the Forerunners.
We built the Halo rings, the ark, everything.
We studied the flood, saw what they can do, captured them.
We died for the good of the universe.

I am Captain Keyes.
I discovered Halo, but it led to my death.
I was tortured by The Flood, and they killed me.
I died protecting the location of Earth.

I am the Prophet of Regret.
I ruled the covenant, led them toward victory.
I was killed by The Demon when he followed me to Delta Halo.
I died trying to defend Halo.

I am the Prophet of Mercy.
I was left for dead by Truth.
I was saved by The Demon, then he killed me.
I died because I was betrayed.

I am Tartarus, chieftain of Brutes.
I laid waste to thousands of worlds.
I was killed by the Arbiter.
I died protecting the Great Journey.

We are the Grunts.
We are the canon fodder for the Covenant.
We were killed by humans and the other enemies.
We died trying to survive.

We are the Elites.
We fight for the Great Journey.
We were killed by humans, Brutes, Heretics, everything.
We died fighting for what's right.

We are the Brutes.
We fight for Tartarus and the Prophets.
We were killed by humans and separatists.
We died fighting for the Great Journey.

We are the soldiers of Earth.
We fought for our lives against an invincible enemy.
We were killed by the Covenant soldiers.
We died protecting our home.
