The pain of the truth
Burns hotter than the flames
That left the scar.
A scar that had lost
All meaning.

As lost as a child.
A daughter.
Not his daughter.
Never his.
He stole the child.

Thats not right.
Not stolen,
It cannot be true.
Yet the memories return.

The caged bird,
Trapped in her tower.
Only to be released to
Drown in the flame,
the mountains of men.

This will be fixed.
No one deserves this.
The pain.
The torture.
To stain their hands in blood.

To go to the beginning.
To stop the birth.
It is the only way to save her.
The outcome will change.
I will end this.

All of this.
For her.
My Anna.

I will change the outcome.
I have to.
One last death.
With my death,
The doors will close.
The second piece I wrote after completing Bioshock Infinite. Spoilers abound!! This was easily one of the greatest pieces of art I have witnessed in a while. The story was very engrossing and that ending. My god that ending was so tragic. I had to write this. I had to.

:P Not so tragic, did you wait until the end of the credits? ^^ Its actually a very bittersweet ending although mostly happy in overall context.

Depending on how you interpret that last bit. You never do see her.

in a way..but it was also easy to understand. killing comstocks existence doesnt kill booker or anna. notice the epilogue is 1 year after he originally sold her. things just played out as if comstock and the lutces were never there. although i dont know if booker absorbed the previous bookers memories or not
