Waltz For Zizi

Rookie - 510 Points (7 march 1988)

And I Shall Chain All Angels To The Ground

And I shall chain all angels to the ground,
pull down the moon and every cloud
that proudly flies above my head,
and putting out the stars, with my little finger,
I shall shout towards the heavens
and to the creator of all, man or angel:
Are you stronger than me?

You've chewed her soul long enough,
you've stolen too much of her lovely flavour
much to much, dear god, with your trials
so please, I beg you, put her problems on my shoulders
bring her monsters in my way
for I will take good care of them
I will send them back to hell
if you're not willing to step in,
for I am stronger than you
in this world, it seems.

    What a poem! It seems you want to do it by yourself due to some challenges. I think we don't have power atimes to change some situation but rely on the creator. Read my poem: Not By Power (Report) Reply

poet James Whitcomb Riley

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
