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
