Poetry: The place gentle by no means goes


By PJ “Starling” Letourneau

Motherless child
Fatherless son
A spark within the void
The place as soon as there was none

I wanted a King
I wanted a Queen
To name off the battle
Inside my being

I wanted a truce
To this horrible battle
From the battles that raged
Exterior my entrance door

I’m weary and worn
From the battle that’s inside
From the numerous lengthy battles
I may so hardly ever win

I’ve toiled on for eons
And eons once more
Being minimize down and born
Being born after which useless

Why would I select
A lifetime of neglect?
Of hoping and wishing
Parallel traces intersect

A life with no hope
A life barely lived
My life was discarded
Rotting from inside

Motherless child
Fatherless son
A love got here to be
The place as soon as there was none

A love got here to be
From a lifetime of neglect
From the darkish got here a spark
From the twigs … got here a nest!

So love within the Universe
Is thus not conserved!
From pure darkness got here gentle
From the egg … got here a chicken!

A chicken that descended
From nice lizards that ended
When meteors rained
From nice flood swept away

The lizards that crawled
Out of the ocean
And fought to persist
With mind and with fist

For eons and eons
Of life consuming life
An orgy of demise
And endless strife

Every eon a layer
Of carnage and dread
That was minimize down by time
And raised from the useless

This nice churning of life
That’s seething in blood
From the eons of rage
After which drowned within the floods

From every layer of rock
Made out of lizards of previous
That had been minimize down by time
And decreased into bones

Within the rock, over eons
A transparent crystal grows
From the bowels of darkness
The place gentle by no means goes

I used to be determined for gentle
Within the chilly and the darkish
A starvation so painful
The ache made a spark

A starvation so deep
A starvation so large
I mattress down for winter
It was too chilly exterior

From inside that seething
Mass of destruction
Got here crystals so ordered
Gentle felt no obstruction

A crystal from chaos
A crystal from rage
Might channel the sunshine
Like a bow within the rain
