My time is coming to an end. No longer would I live by the sword for the days of fighting are over. The love that I have been so afraid to take, bound by loyalty still waits for my heart to open, and I take her by the hand. This could be our time, but destiny is the dragon that never sleeps. She merely crouches in wait to take hold of me once more, but what would she ask for in return? My love or my life?
They dictate my life, and I am bound by tradition and honor. But my heart burns to be free and soar through the legends that give me spirit. I want to fight and die by the sword. I want to break these chains of ritual, custom. I want to live my life not behind the black facade but as a new legend being born, but would determination blind me to those that may be allies instead of enemies? My youth is my betrayer, and time is the cruel lesson to be learned. But at the end of my journey would I find myself diving deep into the heavens finally free and the keeper of my destiny.
His sacrifice was the glass holding her heart. So many times, she wished to shatter the wall that held her back, but the same wall kept him from touching her. And they were prisoners to honor, but their hearts knew not of this bond. And a moment in time may have finally arrived to move the barricade, but then destiny stepped in. And she swung her sword high in the air, slicing them deep, and tears of their forbidden love flowed red. And time slipped away as he whispered, "I love you," and the walls shattered. And her heart broke over the one, who could have set her free.
A moment in time promised to put the past to rest, but old enemies die hard. And a warrior knelt beside the deathbed of his master, swearing avengence, and a love that waits keeps on waiting. And youth is the dagger held only by one hand, and strings are pulled, manipulation to set the trap. And revenge waits to spring into action, but there would be no victory. Destiny would claim both hero and foe.
A simple errand leads one woman into the heart of mystery. A formidable foe reveals an old enemy. The recklessness of youth clashes against her wisdom. Her eyes see through the illusion, but it is the conspiracy that she wishes to not stir. She merely seeks a reasonable solution, but there is no reason or honor in the one chasing legends. And she has no choice but to fight, and the warrior awakens inside her.
But another warrior senses his end. His journey returns him to her, and his sword is laid to rest. But the metal of his legend glows green in another's hand, and he finds himself facing a foe that could become his legacy. And as time darts by, his vow to avenge his master pulls the curtain back to reveal an old enemy long thought disappeared, and this was his chance for revenge. And if he succeeded, the bloodshed would finally be over, and his heart could be free. But fate had other plans.
The essence of life flows through water, and the rhythm of love is the thunderous waterfall crashing down into the unknown. And journey is the river that flows to its end, leaving legacy behind, and its story is one of honor, strength, passion, conflict, and depth. And tears of sadness flow endlessly over heroes that fight to the death, and inspiration is the ink that gives dreams hope of freedom. And the power of emotion are the strings pulling our heart, and we are swept away into an overwhelming tale of love, loss, and legend. And tension beats against a thousand drums as the fighting stance is taken, and the beauty of music stirs our soul like a gentle breeze across the desert. And Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, winner of four Academy Awards, is a true vision of cinema.
