The Four Horsemen Of The Apocalypse 4 Death


I am Death!
Your nemesis.
I shall kiss
Each and every one of you!
You think you know me
I know you fear me.
I am the sweeper
The keeper of your time!
My brothers come before me
They'll take your world apart.
They decide your ending
They bring another start.
We gave you all the choices
To protect this blessed land.
And what you did was rape it
Turning verdant into sand.
Well, I reaped your Adams
I collected Eve.
And I shall reap all your poor souls
Now, will you believe?
Listen for the beating wings
The black crows that I send.
Then understand, you mortals
The message, I portend.
For this, I now can tell you
For you, it is too late
I am here to reap your souls
And seal your final fate!
And when you've departed
We shall start anew
The beasts and birds and fishes
Replacing each of you!

    In the face of mankind's many mistakes may the death of our current charted course of greed and indifference toward the earth and our fellow man be the only death revealed. For those who care and want to right the course to a better future of harmony and balance, the second death has no power. It is merely an awakening.
    This is a very powerful series. A jolting piece of poetry to waken the sleeper from the mesmerism of apathy. (Report) Reply

    Time exists beyond death, time exist beyond worldly views.
    Death is but raindrop in a hurricane of coming and goings. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
