When the Gates

When the Gates

A Poem by Leigh Green

When they open the gates
And there is the drop
I will be beside you
Until my heart decides to stop

When we are royal
Riding golden on high
I will keep it like that
Until the riches fade and die

If words can cause you rally
And you are risen up
I will keep looking ahead
Until we drink from the bitter cup

Can you believe
What they have done?
A blink of the eye
And our race is run

When the gates are open
And we face the hail
I will be there
I will not fail

Are you lifted?
Has it got you inside?
Don’t worry about death
Enjoy the ride

This is great perfectly written. Can picture them busting through the gates to take on their opponents head on, back to back on the battlefield.

Powerful use of words and thoughts. Some situation must be lived to understand. This is one of them. Thank you Leigh for sharing the amazing poetry.
