In this forum post, I’ll paste a poem handwritten by yours truly daily! I’d love to get constructive criticism and feedback on them, so feel free to do so! Auf weidersehen!

As I walk, kicking the ash up

I look to the skies

Burning with hews of orange

Clouded by dark clouds and smoke 

The wind blows bitter

Coating my skin with dust

Speaking to me in ancient tongues

That I cannot understand 

As it carries forth the howls of the lost

I carry my pen in and

My paper in other

I write of the darkness

Surrounding the world

Surrounding the hearts of many

I write of the flames

Destroying all life

Leaving nothing but ash and corpses

And I write of the terror

That subdues all that survives

All that remains

But in the darkness

Within the burning flames

And within the terror

Is a flower that blooms vibrantly

It’s petals stretch ever outward

Catching all light that shines

Regardless of the sun

Having been blocked out from the clouds 

From the smoke 

From the ash

Bright red

Bright blue

Vibrant white

This flower takes many colors

Blooming rose

Budding lavender 

Rising sunflower

Dangling Lilies 

This flower takes many forms

If only you wish it to

Nurture this flower

Feed it and keep it watered

And it will do the same for you

For it cannot survive alone

In this apocalyptic state of mind

And neither can you.

Sorry I missed a couple days, IRL issues. Anyway, here’s number two!

 

The trees move faster than I

As I sit in the passenger seat

Performing weekly rituals

To talk about things

That you wouldn’t care to hear

I sit and I think

Of what I will say

Many things come to mind

Too fast for me to grasp a single one

I try to hang on to one thought

The thought of a release

But it is not enough

It never is enough

I come home to the same 

And with the god home

I can’t grasp my happiness

Loosing it with every small mistake

Am I doomed to bear this for life

Or will I find peace?

Only time, as infinite

As irrelevant 

As illusive as it is

Will tell me my future

But whether it be dark and lonely

Or bright and full of friends

I will push through

I’ve made it thus far

Why give up now?

I have weapons

I have heavy armor

My writing is my closure

In between skirmishes

My music is my titanium armor and shield

My games and work my razor sword

My lips are my bow 

And my words their arrows

And I will use all in my possession

To fight until I draw last breath 

And I do not intend on loosing

This war is mine

Mine alone

And I am it’s victor

I will vanquish all that stands in my way

I will rise above all pain and suffering

And I will stand before you

Dirt and ash on my armor

The blood of my pain on blade

And I will announce to you

The war is won

I have fought hard and well

Through the fire and the ash

Through the rain and mud

Through hunger and famine

Through suffering and anguish

And I have succeeded

My body may be bruised and wounded

And my mind fragmented

But my heart remains

It is stitched, but beats stronger than ever

Join me in battle!

Take up your sword and shield!

Strap on your armor, heavy or light!

Daggers, bows, maces, or war hammers!

Take them up and fight with me!

Prove that you are strong 

Not only to the world

But to yourself!
