The Prophecy That Is

If only i had a chance to make things better
For they aren’t any fair now, never

Oh, i could build cities n’ kingdoms
None too many to eradicate our ambits
Love and plenty in each and every
Young and alike, no more foreboding

I have tried, and i will so on,

Had i had a say, in his divine play,
Augmented on this reality of our tale,
Dancing, merry, and a concord, yet faraway.

A wisdom, stark, and on my face.

Crimson, and raw the dusk sets
Higher powers in its play
Anger, Age, and no other humanly in the fray
Nigh, the time draws, so slow and soft
Creeping unto mortality, bare, and bitten
Elegies and sobs, and an old violin say

Together and only thus, a song is sung
Of erased pasts and a united dominion.

Make a wish, and whistle into the air,
And listen, listen close, she’ll say,
Kings and commanders have come this way,
Enduring what i have bequeathed.

The days that were, and those that will be,
Hurdles that there were, and those that are,
Incepting the fact, of pervert men and sinful too,
Notwithstanding a force this strong,
Gore and death that followed, a bout of blasphemy
Sans a box, to put these sins back in,

Beloved and all, see it and sing, a song of accord,
Edge it out of your lives, the sorrow and ire,
Transcend beyond, for we aren’t meant this way,
To a happy life, and no qualms or despair,
Enervate that greed, and do it now,
Reality will not last for another epoch.

  3. I love your creativity with the first line going down the poem’s line, most people are not able to execute it well without it sound forced, but this is a delightful job.

    I also enjoy the heavier feel behind the obvious small problems the nameless character has:

    “build cities n’ kingdoms”
    “Had i had a say, in his divine play”
    “Reality will not last for another epoch.”

    Gives the poem a much deeper feeling.

  4. You had me from the start.
    “…If only i had a chance to make things better
    For they aren’t any fair now, never…”.

  7. The acrostic element is like an elemental whisper in the wings! It barely seems to control the lovely series of ideas in the poem. Especially loved “Sans a box, to put these sins back in,” I am sure that Pandora’s Box enjoys a mention! Great poem!

  8. I NOMINATE YOU FOR
    The Versatile Blogger Award
    I am honored but I feel you are more deserving than I based on the way you paint
    with words and write with hues of color.
