Reflection of an Animal

Reflection of an Animal

Can I forever run away?
No, I’ll get you in time.
I can’t let them see me this way.
But they all see you’re mine.

I want to break free from the beast
But I’ve bound your hope in chains
I want freedom, love and peace
But you’ll fall to me, insane.

I want to break the ties that bind
But they’re stronger than you see
To look to light, answers to find
And you’ll always fall to me.

I can’t see the one who holds me down
But I’m always by your side
I can’t hear the creature not a sound
Your own anger leaves you blind

I just want the voice to stop
But It will not for we are one
In every action, every thought
Until our final setting sun.

(25/01/2013) Two Wolves

two wolves
Inside of us
Two forces fight
One of them evil
One of them light.
Wolves some would say
A territoral duel
To decide who will die
And decide who will rule.
Anger and greed
Feed the dark beast
Ego and lies
A kings royal feast.
Peace, joy and kindness
Give strength to the other
Humility stands
In the eye of the lover.
But which animal wins
Sits heavy on you
So as you grow old
What will you do?
The decicion lies in
The emotions you bleed
Because the wolf that will win
Is the one that you feed.

I changed the image because I found a better one. I’ve included a link to the old one here.

Part I: Twins

This is a little different style for me, I’m writing a story, told from 2 points of view. I’m writing it as a poem. This is the beginning of it and I plan to continue it every Tuesday. Be sure to follow for next weeks piece. -Alex H.

From high in my tower
I cast a spell
To turn this world
into a living hell

From high in my palace
A chant a spell
To remove all the pain
and assure all is well.

My spell will kill many
And make fire rain
And all they will know
is sorrow and pain.

By blessing will heal
The kingdom I reign
And cure them of all
the disease and the pain.

I am a master
Of dark magic arts
A wizard of hate
For those tortured hearts.

I am a healer
With heart plain and true
Tending to all
Who require me to.

My twin dressed in white
She rules this land
But when I am through
Her life in my hands.

My twin dressed in red
Cast out as a boy
For playing with fire
As it were a toy.

She could have allied
Herself with me
But soon she will pay
Yes soon she will see.

He could have allied
Himself with me
But he would not listen
To my crying plea.

To cast her aside
Like the kindness I had
Like she cast me
When I was a lad.

But he will not win
This battle of fate
I cannot lose
My fear must abate.

I know I must rule
With iron and chains
But if I am to win
My tone I must change.

I know I can’t win
If he were to come
As what has come to be
Cannot be undone.

I know I can’t win
If she were to appear
I couldn’t hurt her
My sister dear.

I wouldn’t dare
We can’t fight eachother
We are one in the same
Sister and brother.

My sister I miss
I wish she were here
my fate is unkind
memories unlear.

My brother I miss
I wish he were here
My fate is unkind
memories unclear.
