The Rhythm Of Time Comments

Rating: 5.0
There's an inner thing in every man,
Do you know this thing my friend?
It has withstood the blows of a million years,
And will do so to the end.


Bobby Sands

Worth reading and rereading but I am no longer so sure about the heroic as I once was.

On reading Rhythm of Time by Bobby Sands Self righteous be the order short The base camp days away The reason without purpose Grand hubris belayed, The fight that says You'll be destroyed, But cur who will not try The light that falls On cold pale cheeks Who looks and walks away From stoney failed offerings Whom turned from lighted day, The heart that says It is but fear, I rise to die today, To face my foe And in that fight Expose a darkness by, Victory at ended day Or eternal cursed night, To stand and fall Accepting plight Surrendering to the cause, To breathe and sigh That last but once To hope and never know, Whether blood be lost Or by heated sacrifice Ignition of an epoch new, Or wasted as in countless trife The cause all proved untrue, But righteous are eternal truths From which the years subside No coin of currency can corrupt Or sad politic divide, No vacancy in that sacred course When right drives hearts engaged To immerse all life and history To cause and days til played And victory be told by those That watched and sniffed the flames And mulled the ruins in cautious day And thought upon cold graves.
