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.

The last stanza is definitely my favorite! I'm really not well suited to pass judgment on poetry, but this piece surely made me think deeply. I think that if a writer can challenge me to contemplate over the course of nine stanzas, then neophyte to poetry criticism or not, you did an excellent job. Well done.

Love it but have to say the ending is the topping on the cake! "Treasures are left where they belong
All they took with them was their dirty desires" Nailed it!

Likewise bro
This is why in every decision or turn you make, you need to seek His wisdom and blessing, then create your strategy and lay it all out for Him to prepare the road ahead for you in all humility…..

Thank you my friend
First, I like the message behind this, and some of the word choices are superb. The flip side to this is that several of the words are also lacking, and either feel awkward or are just lacking the in the power they 'could' have. The main problem here is that you have a few tenses off and articles missing and so it makes the poem flow awkwardly at times. This is not a huge problem if it is what you intended, Poetry is difficult to proof, because 'improper English' is preferred at times, such as incomplete sentences. All in all a good poem, keep on making them!

Thank you appreciate your review
There are very few words I can say to compliment your poem short of simply "Brilliant". It is greatly evident in every line and in every word that your scribes are well thought and articulated. I applaud what you've written! Keep up the great work.
