Acheron-VII is the second poem from the short story anthology Halo: Evolutions - Essential Tales of the Halo Universe. It was written by Jonathan Goff, while Nicolas "Sparth" Bouvier created the artwork.

The PoemEdit

It's barren
The air chokes: on dust and smoke
the ground cracks: surrendering to the heat
It's lonely
with only the dead as company,

but anymore, this has become his closest companion;

There was once a purpose to all this
a specific design
Soldiers sent forth in the name of retribution
In their path: an alien Covenant
vast in number
ardent in their belief
now, but one stands
Only one survivor
His friends taken by conflict
Their adversaries delivered unto
Alone now: he treks the wastelands
Cut off: stranded
Knowing somewhere above:
Out and beyond
His brothers, his sisters, continue to struggle
Continue to fight, to die:
to strive
A million stars between here and home
A million enemies: more
Yet here he stands: ever vigilant
And here he'll stay:
A lone warrior, on a desolate plain.
