The Day Our Journey Began. (An Original Poetry)

Our journey commences,
from the very first day
laughter and tears
muck and gore,
naked as daylight
staring into excited faces
peering curiously
into some innocent eyeballs

It gets farther,
from where we began:
a travel to
unnerve these travails,
from the war of words,
clashing voiceferously,
beating drums of death
within and without
like whistling spears
and thumping shields.

The world is a cyclone,
spinning viciously.
throwing jabs
and blows
from invincible punches.
threachery lives
within the heart of men,
ovulating gently,
till it begins to throb
pulsating darkness
from left, right and center.

Devils in heels,
are loitering in shadows.
calling in silent voices
beckoning..
as their eyes flickers
enchantingly
yodelling like serpents
from their glittering lips
that beams like glow-worms.

From we we stand,
in search of a refuge,
after many miles,
breathless and weary,
blistered and bleeding.
our hope; like a candlelight,
threatened by fiery wind,
the howling nights,
testing our frighted hearts
from angles we know not.

It gets feistier,
as we near the realms,
of salvation.
we are warriors,
made gladiators
for the fear
of being tossed away,
cold and lonely
into boundless beyond,
bereft of love.

Lovely poem, the journey to the world, we came with nothing and while returning we are definitely not to return with anything

Nicely written

Our journey started that day on the hospital bed or the mid-wife's house

Our existence brought either smiles or fears to the faces of those who were present that night

As we stepped into this horizon, we begin to face the travails, and tribulations

But we stayed strong, no matter how much the winds and howling nights tried to defeat us

It's good you could totally give meaning" to the poem, its been a long time i've been trying to make my poems as simplistic as possible without much or clashing themes or having a paradox that could create confusion. Im glad it turned out good as well. Thanks for stopping by. Indeed our Journey began.

Lol

Sincerely, I had to read over and over before I finally got it

I am glad I got it right though

No doubt, there are lots of clashing here and there, and you were messing with my brain... Lol

Hahah loool this one was actually laced with one thematic idea and that was our odyssey from birth to death and I had to do a little jamboree there, some description and then the first verse should of course have given the poem away.

Thanks for actually taking the time
