Prison Of Fatih


I am the bright light of endless promise
Watch in awe as I radiate
From a once dark and
Abandoned place.
I am the epitome of hope
An unassuming prisoner of faith
A lost and forgotten memory
Of what once was
A change once destined
For a discouraging fate.
Dare to love me as I am
In my splendid mourning;
A funeral for a condition
Of thought,
Mind and
Spirit.

    Wow I'm at awe, this poem is just beautiful, the words are placed just right. Indeed we are all prisoners of some kind faith or none of us would still live. A motivation unknown, yet unchanged.
    Years of service, in the hopes that one day we might be free. A slave to a continuous fight against all odds. One day it will all end. But until then we go on, living among the roses that smell so sweet, but the thorns bring us this constant pain. This is what it means to be alive. (Report) Reply
