Rise of the Fallen.............................

Raise
O Forsaken and dejected but libertine souls!
Tho`r beaten badly afore,
And blessed with death in the farthest shores,
But the world is not yet done
behold! the heavenly bodies stick to their restless turns

We are the souls, dare to challenge
The heavens and heights-
And trampled all the fears and fright,
Let’s stand and ride the rainbows
And stretch your wings
Beyond heavens and hells,
And roam in the skies.

And to seek salvation
For those who`r condemned
With our mighty swings.
Let’s wedge a war of another Troy,
To destroy
The deities and the demigods,
And their pseudo reverence
That seduces our hearts,

Stand united my fellow brethren!
And pour out all
Your wrath, vengeance and hate
And strain all your nerves,
Unsheathe and raise your swords, arrows, dagger and spears
And march to the heavens` gates
The eternity belong to us
The Armageddon is just begun.

    John, this is pretty awful! ! Fight it all you want, but you're a CONTEMPORARY poet, not a 19th-century zombie; all your musty, dusty, melodramatic diction belongs to bad 19th-century magazine verse. STOP writing and START reading good contemporary poetry! After several years of studying your living betters, you just might compose a graceful, relevant, affecting poem! It's hard work but worth it!
