Odysseus, surprised, began explaining who he was, how he got here, But Cere continued to gaze at the man who he believed was queer. Odysseus finishing his point, wondered if this “Cere” was really listening Or if he had just ignored him, thought what he said was uninteresting. However, Cere spoke and told Odysseus he must change his ways, And if he didn't, he would find himself soon in a world of dismay. Despite what Cere had said, Odysseus just ignored, Believing he alone didn't need any advice, because he was the only “powerful lord”. Cere could only shake his head, Knowing Odysseus’s life would come to an unfortunate end. Once again, Cere explained how he could help or assist, But Odysseus still refused and left raising a strong clenched fist. Odysseus quickly left the island and didn’t look back. He continued his journey until the sky had suddenly turned black. Odysseus looked around, wondering what was happening, Then, he turned and noticed something very striking and dazzling. What Odysseus saw was a very bright light, Which he assumed was other gods coming together with tremendous might. He believed they were coming to worship and reward his works, But little did Odysseus know that this light had a turn for the worst. The closer Odysseus drew towards the bright light, He recalled the words of the short old man about not losing sight. How to remain focused on the true prize, Instead of being tempted or doing otherwise . However, Odysseus ignored his thoughts and went his own way, Falling deeper into the trap of temptation that would eventually lead him astray. Odysseus then vanished into the light and was never seen again, Leaving his family and those who loved him heart broken. In the end, no one truly knows what happened to Odysseus that day. Some say he was taken by gods, while others say he will return again without delay. Though Odysseus’s legacy and victories have all been written down in history, His life and where he is now remains a mystery.
