Day Of Reckoning

Snow falls down on this day so sweet.
Its our day of reckoning,
our day of defeat.
We lay down our swords and surrender
to the sky.
The earth will show no mercy.
Its fury sees through our lies.
If our spirits really are the kind that never
die.
Then this illusion of fear is insignificant
when the end is nigh.
Lets face now our creator.
Embrace the power of our maker.
Leave this earth and let it cleanse.
Let our spirits fly free and dance.

Rosco daw Claim this poet

d-ory@hotmail.comIf I try to describe myself I can't cause I don't really know. I think I'm a bunch of different personalities in one body. I' am dark and a little depressed behind closed doors. But towards my friends I' am confident and happy. I struggle for acceptance from people but I do a great job of hiding it.Poetry is my release. Without it I could'nt function. But I think I was always meant to have it. I had never written a poem until I was 22 years old. I did'nt even know I could write a poem until someone special inspired me then shattered my heart. I believe this is why I write mostly dark, depressive poems. Because that's how it all started for me.My tag is weight of the world. Reason being I believe the weight of the world is on the shoulders of a few. And most of us are just standing around consuming and polluting waiting for others to clean up after us. I reflect some of this in my poetry.I live in Hobart, Australia and I' am 24 years old. Thanks for reading. Leave comments, your thoughts and I will return the favour.P.S There are certain words spelt differently in Australia so please keep this in mind when reviewing my poetry. And I 'am on facebook under rosco daw. E-mail at top of page.... more…
