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.

Ah the twists of fate and trials and tribulations, that face us all. I often wonder how much is predetermined. I guess no matter what though, it really is up to us on how we deal with it. I really enjoyed reading. It must have been destiny.

Isn't everything a mystery, Amos? Everything...and the constant, recurring patterns of us, being humans. Does anybody really even know what that means, or why it means anything? Thing about people like you, Amos, is that you turn it all into this...a work of art.

Thanks for dropping by my page.I am here to repay your kindness :) This poem made me twist and turn .My mind did a somersault.Moving from the top of a cliff to the freefall .Your words told tale of downfall in an exquisite manner.We all touch the heights of success but its even harder to maintain that top position. You have studied the situation well enough.At some point of time we all give away to our Dirty Desires.

Thank you BeeBev...
It is a thin line between success and failure. one wrong step, one bad debt, it makes it so easy to be down on your luck. I like the ending, we only take with us our dirty desires. No matter where we are, we take ourselves with us~ Nice job
