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.

Powerful and insightful poem . Beautiful wording and heartfelt piece .
Wheels of fortune is always turning . We can't disregard anyone who is down on their luck and befriend others who has fortune to spare . Basic humanity = respect others :-)

Aloha,

As long as we have breath, we have hope, if we continue to press our way forward...

I don't think it's possible to guarantee our future path completely, we can plan and focus, however...Sometimes life throws curve balls from left field without warning. It is at these times we have find the lesson...there always is one, somewhere...

The most important lesson I have learned is to be thankful for the gift of life, regardless of one's circumstances... as we all have 24 hours in each day. Each new day is a gift... a present waiting to be opened and explored...

Very well done, you!

Alisa ;-)

So much truth and insight into the different sides of life. How easily do we plummet into the depths of despair when life takes it's vicious twists and turns.

Your very welcome, it was my pleasure. :-)
the tragic tale of downfall, but very true indeed for the laws of gravity do apply WHAT GOES UP, MUST COME DOWN, its inevitable, even as was the case with all great kingdoms and empires, at some point, downfall must come. we all experience it, the birth life and death in whatever form it may present itself.
