A Field Long Outdated – A Poem

Years go by, leaving us with nothing,IMG_1401
Heroic blackness,
Cowardly Veils.

He smugly sat speaking:
Tales of war by veterans of sedation,
Fables of triumph by victors of none.

But there were no larks,
No singing,
No bravery.

Where was he when the war had come,
Where were you when he fled to home.

And left in lore and legacy:

You are forced upon his quarrels.
You inherit his foe.

We lived,
We felt dawn,
But there was no sunset to glow.

Isaac Olajos

  1. This is wonderfully done. If I may, I suggest adding more tags, you have a wonderful approach and view of life that I am sure many others would benefit from reading.

  2. That is how poetry is meant to be written!
