Downfall

Downfall

A Poem by A. Amos
"

Fall and rise are part of life, few give up yet some learn and stand tall...

"

Downfall

All dream-destinies for a better tomorrow

Turn ideas into reality, huge loans they borrow

Troubles knock everyone’s door, you’re not alone

Look around, feel unheard cries; World…full of sorrow


When success comes and hits life
everyone is utterly on different skies
even those whom we never knew, are close
Time seems frozen, life turns as a beautiful red rose


Life can throw you in smoldering hell
all the doors clogged, no path left to dwell
Sitting petrified, bitter memories with prosaic soul
world tarnished, money vanished, no one to propel

Deep, dark thoughts running in our minds
Sometimes find a way to abolish your soul
To the misery stuck on you, nothing left for fight
Was this the reason we touched opulent heights

Everyone hates, blame, curses, enjoy abusing you
Even your own self in its own way, is annoyed too
Magic of life is going back in time, watching movies
Often sad, some fun and few packed with glories

How can the world disregard, wondrous histories we made

 myriad lives we touched, flaming sun we provided shades
We only thought to make the world better place
Now they look at us with abhorrence, our hard work has fade

Yesterday squandering millions, today not a single penny
damn felt blessed with her presence, first one left was Jenny
Tensions start pummeling brain, merely luxury left was smoking

 Lifestyle revolutionized so swiftly, strange mystery left provoking


99% of life is painted with poignant tales
1% of life brings us magic of feeling
ecstatic 
consider failure God’s wish, accept without malice
Downfall an eradicator, its life's we’ve to gracefully face

 

It’s not only you, history is full of characters

One day they were king, next in vagrant’s attire

Treasures are left where they belong

All they took with them was their dirty desires

Destiny is not a fickle thing... What is weak is man's ability to understand it. We can lose ourselves, stepping backwards into the rapid-moving river of fate, and be lashed by emotions on the way, and then drown in circumstances beyond our control. But despite this, there's value in human determination. You've touched on many things in this poem, friend, but these themes are what stood out for me. Keep writing.

This really gives a sense of the ebb and flow that life can bring. You paint a clear picture here and I went along with you. I especially like the line “99% of life is painted with poignant tales, 1% of life brings us magic of feeling ecstatic” how very true.

Wow. Astonishing! I really loved every single bit of this piece, every word, every line, every stanza. It was a brilliance in and of its self. The flow of word upon word on each line captivates the imaginative mind with a serene truth that many seem to deny. Very deep and creative, and true. Definitely something worthy of a lengthy review and also five stars! Keep up the brilliant job, my friend! I'm looking forward to reading more of your work.

I like this poem Amos.
All we take is our character. Not our deeds, failings or accomplishments... Yet we, our character, becomes from what we practice in thought and deed.
Worth a good ponder. Well done.

Hey,
I would say you have a really strong rhythm..that seems to be what holds this poem together. It sounds like it should be rapped/read out loud! Good job having a solid rhythm and lots of great rhymes. It flows really well. It has a really harsh almost angry sound to it, or maybe that's just how I percieved it? So yea, really strong rhythm! It feels a bit jumbled and wordy, but I'm only telling you this because it is really strong and you are a good writer.
Thanks!
