Come On Poem by Kevin Patrick

Come On

Rating: 5.0


Come unite, you misfits of the shelter dark
For tonight we stand together as one
And if we let our demons become a pale ghosts
Then for a single moment we have won


We spend our days with quite rage
Looking for reasons to be human
But find ourselves inside a mask
Through a city of lonely ruins


We divide ourselves with priceless flags
And anthems of cretin's creeds
But blindly pass our brothers begging
To feed our vain capricious needs

Its our common sense called ignorance
To settle sentiments for truth
Yet if we could shatter these illusions
We'd quash the egos of our ruse


For most of us Life's a painful test
That we were never meant to pass
So let us fail with dignity
Then we can make the good times last


For It is those who know true loneliness
Who learn to walk inside the dark
And are guided through the blindness
That pierces the void that lights the spark


So come on and lets begin
Because I'm a little bit paranoid
And I'm afraid that I like it that way

Life faces many critical situations but no one should get deeps stress but he should keep patience. Committing suicide is so sad. Due to ignorance a man does it. But he should listen to God's natural music and get relief from his high stress. Life is precious.

City of lonely ruins cries but the man should try to escape from ignorance and sadness. Tender natural music with godly theme helps in releasing stress out. You poem is really very sensitive poem and this provokes thought. We should be careful.
