Reconciliation, Reformation, Restoration

Reconciliation, Reformation, Restoration

A Poem by Somiena
"

A poem based loosely on a scene from one of the books in the Wheel of Time series by Robert Jordan (I say loosely because it might as well not be based around that at all).

"

Look around you

At this devastation, corruption;

This is what you left behind

When you went out of your mind...

Do you remember

Destroying, incinerating

Everything in sight

On that horrid night?

 

[This is a reconciliation,

A reformation, a restoration.

This is a cleansing of heart and soul,

Of mind and body, of all that is foul.]

 

Something inside you snapped

Like a twig in a hurricane;

What you were wasn't you.

We didn't know what to do...

Could we just stand there?

Watch as you burned everything,

Turned everything you cared for

Into ash and nothing more?

 

[This is a reconciliation,

A reformation, a restoration.

This is a cleansing of heart and soul,

Of mind and body, of all that is foul.]

 

You see what you've done

And your soul cries out in hate and fear

'Cause there is nothing left but dust,

Mold, debris, dirt, and rust.

You have a choice to make

Here and now, before you walk away:

You can leave it behind, start anew,

Or hold on to those days you rue.

 

[This is a reconciliation,

A reformation, a restoration.

This is a cleansing of heart and soul,

Of mind and body, of all that is foul.]

 

What happened wasn't to you;

Everything is for you, for a reason.

You did this yourself, but there's a cause

And now's your chance to see your flaws.

Now you can see who you really are

Without the demons of your past

Clouding up your eyes,

Hiding truth in lies.

 

[This is a reconciliation,

A reformation, a restoration.

This is a cleansing of heart and soul,

Of mind and body, of all that is foul.]

we can hope, at least!
I think this would make a good dark lyric to a song. Dark and moody. Worthy of song.
