Cup Of Ashes - Poem by Beggar Boy

Cup of Ashes here tonight
Here to talk of my damnable plight
Lost in tears, lost in flight
Without sound, without sight

Can you hear me, O Divinity?
Can you perceive my misery?
Broken, chained, lost at sea
Meandering in my ocean called Apathy

Fading, fading; this little flower
Losing hope; losing courage by the hour
S.O.S. to the Strongest Power:
Send Your grace, and love please shower!

It's a devilish place,
This deserted space
No water, not even a trace
Where depravity and Divinity come face to face.

    This is a very profound poem...something good to read when one wishes to think. Excellent word choice, interesting rhyme, and the end...'Where depravity and Divinity come face to face, ' is such an interesting paradox...would be interesting to see how one affects the other. (Report)Reply
