Indestructible (poetry challenge, Nature)

naturally…


So here I am with eyes wide open
The heroes march in single file
They think of nothing
And make no noise
Their feet are half a foot
Above the ground
Their faces face a distant sun
Their backs back onto
The old and feeble,
Each child and mum.

Will Nature now hear my call?
I’m in my own Bardo Thodol.
Each day is old,
My breath is cold,
The tide of ignorance is gone
And won’t return for long.

Who summons me
If not her seasons,
Spring to have hope
And Fall to linger
Throughout the winter,
Summer to play A Human
Playing God?

Each Conscience claiming
We’re simply Souls in Hades
Lies in service of its Boss,
The one whose winning fate
For us means total loss.
Many were certain
The deal is fair,
Or were convinced
Ten lifetimes later.
Others have peace now
On Blissful Islands
With Perfect Domes.
The vast majority
Are pointlessly reborn.

I walked the last time
Towards Creation
With or without a plan,
My thirst was never
Bigger than my need
To hide and shun.

So here I am with eyes wide open
My moments all are chosen;
There is no lesson
Which must be taught
Once more.

I wrote this poem for all
With or without intentions,
I grabbed a pen and paper
Or should I say descended into
A fertilized egg which would become
a corpse?
Perhaps I’ve only learned one thing:
It is not right to give a fight
Designed to fail or not fail as a slave

of Fateful Nature

Let’s all be rebels
And quench our thirst for living
at least as free as

Angels.

Hi Ifyou please, And then there were 3 🙂 you certainly cover some ground with this one with some solid lines, my fav,
Others have peace now
On Blissful Islands
With Perfect Domes.
The vast majority
Are pointlessly reborn.
One small nit, I found the random capitalisation of words of putting as a reader simple because they make it hard to follow and breaks up the flow.
Thank you for joining in the challenge .
Best Keith
