Out of the Ashes

The most epic poem I've ever written.

Out of the Ashes




Fire encasing

Dreams not worth chasing

Daylight succumbing

To the darkness that’s coming



Defenses destroyed

Like a child’s play toy

The invasion soon starts

Straight to our hearts



Battles raging

Emotions caging

Life in its whole

Body, mind, and soul



War cries are lifted

The balance has shifted

We’re pushed to our knees

Silenced were our pleas



Forced to the edge

Bound by a pledge

Whispered by a voice

‘All must have a choice’



Weakened and alone

Broken and struck down

Fumbling for the light

Searching for what’s right



Do not despair

Lift up your eyes

For out of the ashes

We shall rise

The End
