Live or Die Trying

by Midnight Sun   Nov 11, 2008


Falling from grace
Has a hard landing
But before I beg to live
I'll proudly die standing

Because pleading for mercy
Is not the life for me
I'll gladly sacrifice eternity
If I can die free

My wingspan far exceeds
The walls of this cage
That you happily bound me to
Due to anger and rage

I won't be taken easily
I refuse to go without a fight
I'll die for what I believe
Whether or not I'm wrong, I'm right

So this is your one warning
This is not for the faint of heart
Because I'll live or die trying
And attempting to stop me will a bloody war start

    Okay..this was a VERY strong dark piece..why doesn't it have any rating >.< urgh sometimes I really do hate people on this site for not appreciating good poetry.
    That was a very good one you penned here.
    The wording was amazing and the stanzas were really strongly rhyming !

    This stanza..as a beginning one, was just so catchy and perfect..submitting it as the first one made me completely interested in reading the poem.
