Yes...that is what prose is. So it can be rhyming or in prose form.

Seeing as no one has posted in awhile I'll go...

I am not a babysitter
but I babysat.
I am not a fighter
but I fought.
I am not fast
but I am quicker than most.

who am I?

I'm sorry, I am really busy with school, and I don't have the time at the moment to work on an appropriate question for this thread. The floor is open for whomever would like to go.

YAY! ok, lets see....

I am proud
they call me to be one I am not
I am like a shadow
they took my little ones and pushed them into terrible destiny
I am dead
and a dead thing reminds of me

Oh. and BTW, Gil-Galad

My feet in life stepped
On lands now forgotten
My children are nameless
Save one King begotten
I have never been alone
In duty, death and life
Not in one way but two
Did I rise to great heights.

Qui suis-je?

Hmm...perhaps Arwen Evenstar?

The riddle makes me think of the paths of the dead...seems kind of far-fetched but does that have anything to do with it?
