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.

Thank you my friend
"...prosaic soul"
fantastic all by itself ... your poem has this painful arrow of ...hopeless downward spiral that still glimpses a better time ... but even the best material success is laid to waste ... reading "Downfall" is a bit of a rough ride Big A. ..

Amos,
I can't write about it cause I'm still living it.
When I stop I probably won't be on this planet to write about it.
But as long as there is one hungry man woman or child, it ain't mine to keep.
Maybe that's why more always comes just in the nic of time.

The part you write about that during the dry times and empty lonely surrounding occur from it?
Well, it does make you wonder doesn't it?
But those who know who it all belongs to anyway, don't wonder too long and then the run begins again.
