A Reason To Try

by Unseen Exposure   Mar 14, 2005


As the world faded away from me
And as I lost my grip on faith
I took the knowledge I had of wonder
And cradled it within my hate

As the world turned black and cold
And I felt a hunger in my soul
That was the day I knew inside
That my body would never be whole

As the world exploded in a frenzy
I laid down and closed my eyes
Panicking outside the windows
But I had written no Goodbye's

As the people of the dying world
Held each other close, and tight
I waited alone with my broken heart
And kissed away my last night

And as families gathered and cried
I sat silently, with a faded stare
Looked up to the raining skies
And let the rain strip me bare

And as the heavens began collapsing
I felt warmth around my shoulder
I turned around you see an angel
Blessed with wings to hold her

She lifted me from the darkness
And gave me wings so I could fly
For the first time in my faded life
An angel gave me reason enough;
To try.

    The poem was flawless and beautiful. The flow was incredible and I just loved it.

    This part:
    And as I lost my grip on faith
    i would change to:
    --as I lost my grip on faith--

    I know you won't, but it just helped me to read it better when i placed it like that in my head. Other than that, you have an awesome poem on your hands. Well written.

    Great Vocabulary you have btw.

    5/5

    Beautiful, beautiful work.There were so many lines in this piece that I admired, some including the first stance which I must praise how you stated "And cradled it within my hate" displaying how you dealt with loss of faith, and "I waited alone with my broken heart
    And kissed away my last night"
    I really loved that image you portrayed, it was beautiful. I also loved the image you created with,
    "Looked up to the raining skies
    And let the rain strip me bare"
    And
    "And as the heavens began collapsing"

    This poem was dark and tragic yet displayed with a glimmer of insperation at the end. I loved the last stance,
    "She lifted me from the darkness
    And gave me wings so I could fly
    For the first time in my faded life
    An angel gave me reason enough;
    To try."
    Beautiful work, excellent job
