A Soldier Everyday...

Looking out on a thoughtless day
Longing to see heaven someday
A benign feeling of a lonely heart
Seeing all that’s true and all that’s false.

Feelings rushing out through the window
Into a world that’s pulling its strings so fast
Cruising the ship towards madness
As the mighty sea warps us with its talons.

Enter the fray
To live by the day
Die in the blight
Be reborn every night.

The only hope to the abode of suns
To rain down its rays and wash us off our sins
To bring out the halo back to its birth
And surround our babies with its golden hymns.

Born into this world we are here to go
Back to the form that we once adorned.
Yet in the eternal darkness we fight
Blind to what’s wrong and what’s right.

Enter the fray
To fight by the day
Die in the blight
Be reborn every night.

Enter the fray
Die by the day
Burn in the blight
Be reborn every night.
Embrace afterlife
And enter the fray…

Wow! I'm glad to meet the poet in you! These lines convey a sense of hope amid despair, a longing for something anew!

I particularly liked these lines;

"The only hope to the abode of suns
To rain down its rays and wash us off our sins
To bring out the halo back to its birth
And surround our babies with its golden hymns."


"Enter the fray
Die by the day
Burn in the blight
Be reborn every night.
Embrace afterlife
And enter the fray…"

This is so true Vibu.....! I can relate to this so very well!

And the title of course reminded me of Deep Purple's track Soldier of Fortune which is among my most fav numbers ever!

"I have often told you stories
About the way
I lived the life of a drifter
Waiting for the day...."

Cheers my friend.... do pen more lines, I only hope that your work (impending) does not interrupt your blogging

Warm Regards

Rakesh

I read all of them, Adieu Amigo, Vendetta, Blood on the World's Hands and Dawn of Darkness!

I loved Dawn of Darkness & Blood on the World's Hands, the most! Amazing choice of words and a finnesse for portraying events!

"The wounded greet death with open arms;
Let their light disappear into the night.
Their visions dim never to see the dawn,
they wake in hell for the sins that they had done."

The mind of a rocker-poet! Amazing choice of pictures in Dawn of Darkness!

This is truly a league apart!
