The climb is all there is.

Do you know what the realm is?
It's the thousand blades
of Aegon's enemies.
A story we agree to tell
each other over and over
till we forget that it's a lie.
But what do we have left
once we abandon the lie?
A gaping pit waiting
to swallow us all.
Chaos isn't a pit.
Chaos is a ladder.
Many who try to climb it fail
and never get to try again.
The fall breaks them.
And some are given
a chance to climb,
but they refuse.
They cling to the realm
or the gods
or love.
Only the ladder is real.
The climb is all there is.
