Rise - Poem by Josh Weiss

Washing aground the water ripples wave,
Silent in night that mighty darkness brave,
Hushing the shore with mother-like love,
Endlessly watching the stars high above,
Silver pebbles thrown far into the night,
Reflecting bright with the moon’s white light,
Small sprites manifested watching all,
And to the mind does greatly enthrall,
As one upon knees falls to the sand,
Wondering in this dark so grand,
Lifting the arms and raising the head,
Questioning where this life has lead.

A rip sounds across the sea,
And so has come the final decree,
The tearing of the darkness ensues,
As the Lord comes to choose,
The ones with hearts pure of sin,
Those who have truly been
True to themselves and true to others,
As all of man is alike to brothers.

The dark night flashes through,
And a golden light comes to,
Seeping from within the tear,
Across the sky this slit did bear
The full magnificence of the realm,
That to the mind does overwhelm,
Where angels take their precious seats,
Where the heart of happiness beats,
And an ebb of glow does flow forth,
As one stares up to the north.

A thunderous reverb echoes the sky,
As the light retreats with spry,
And one is found still on the beach,
Yearning now to only reach
What has been shown before the eyes,
And now it is time to rise,
To occasion and truth that have yet to come,
Where one draws this happiness from.

With hope rise forth through any dark,
with constant longing you must embark.
