A Warrior's Adieu

Author:

Lee is an aspiring writer who makes poems in his free time. Words and lines give him comfort in trying times.

Lost in the sinking spiral of sadness

I see myself engulfed in impenetrable darkness

O hear me, ominous lord of grit

Sink your teeth in my broken and feeble spirit.


Will they remember my days of dauntless valor?

How I valiantly fought against hideous and dreadful predators

My rusty armor in ruins, for blood it's thirsty

Oh what would I give for another taste of glory.


As the dawning of my decadence draws near

They grew up knowing peace, a world without fear

So what used to be distinct honor and reverence

Became disdain and tragic indifference.


This frail, old man, forgotten by society

Disheartened, as people have lost interest in his story.

They all have focused on being rich and lofty

So when the monsters returned, there's no one to defend the city.

Your vocabulary in this is very picturesque. I really like this poem.
