A History of Dragons


The mighty wings of the chosen
The mighty dragons long forgotten
Above all creatures do they tower
There lies within them limitless power
The human race is forvever shamed
To tame that which cannot be tamed
Death to a dragon, is an obstacle to overcome
Their spirit lives on, more powerful they become
Dragons and humans had once been friends
But for human actions there are no amends
Dragons do not easily forget past wrongs
Their pain lives on in ballads and songs
Their sadness, their torture, it makes them cry
They fear their end is drawing nigh
The evil of humans has been too great
Their existance lies in the hands of fate
For dragons no longer take part in war
Away from death do they constantly soar
Because dragons had almost destroyed their own race
Their existance from history did they nearly erase
Territory and power struggles soon led to hate
hundreds would die over a single mate
But they overcame their fate; with wisdom
and forever established their eternal kingdom

    There is so much to say that is good about this poem, that I should probably just comment on what I didn't like. The only thing I didn't like was the structural
    manner in which it was presented. I thought a more poetic looking structure
    might add something to it. But hey! This is in every aspect a superior creation of a creative mind, and so maybe I'm wrong.

    Enjoyed your dragon poem but felt the rhyme was a little forced in places and the inversion are a bit off putting Hope you don't mind honesty ivor (Report) Reply
