The path to freedom was dark and menacing
Underneath the stars was an array of primordial malady
Nowhere to run, no great escape to perceive
No love story to be written.

A hero came and stirred up chaos
Fought in the midst of uncertainty
Crashed and burned, bloodied pride
White sleeve, drenched in red.

He was no warrior, his sword perished
He couldn’t survive the battle he started
The unnamed hero, lost his cape
He couldn’t save her.

  1. The beginning of this poem echoes lines from another wonderful songwriter,

    “And freedom is a dark road,
    When you’re walking it alone.”

    Paul Simon πŸ™‚ This is beautiful…

      1. Yeah, Paul Simon’s Songbook is full of some beautiful poetry. His music is equally good too πŸ™‚ This is from his song, ‘A Church Is Burning.’ I also love his song, ‘On The Side Of A Hill.’ Especially delightful when you think of the time in which they were written, and understand the political undercurrent. I’m sure a talented poet as you are, you’ll enjoy his work πŸ™‚

  2. A true hero doesn’t always have to win, sometimes the true battles start after the war. Sometimes when you lose, you actually win and that’s what hero’s do, they fight even when all is lost.🌹
