Chapter 1 - Directed Steps (Spoken Word)

A Chapter by Damien Davison
"

Just an introduction in to my life...

"
1.1
A world 
Magically altered 
Manipulated by the minds of the Magi
Energy 
Visualized by the ones holding ties
To the underground society
That governs their lives

1.2
A ban had been placed
With the Casting of Ways on display
The High Order took control 
Of a disorder in the Ways

1.3
An addiction
Mental sickness
Obsessing over interest
Many in the world then 
Seen things I'd never witness

1.4
Ninety years after the Outbreak 
It seemed my dad was outraged
Cause within a couple years he left
This b*****d kid a drought fate

1.5
My mother
She struggled
But pushed through the rubble
Grounding our feet
Though pained, lost, and troubled

1.6
It seemed her luck doubled
A new face existed
He twisted the fate
Of this mother and this kid

1.7
Bonded as chains on the armor of soldiers
A change of view
Born
A brother 
My shoulders

1.8
Exposed to the magic
Reacting with sadness
His tears
I swear they're wept for man and their madness

1.9
A prime candidate
For magic's disaster
Intelligence
Will
And attracted to hazard

1.10
We then traveled far 
Tired
But safe in the place of our good father
With or without 
The relief of a new start
Trials await
So prepare 
Kid
Your weak heart

1.11
Kids in the village would come out to play
And they'd tease 
And they'd bully
To brighten their day
And what angered me most in my mind
At the time
Is they'd do it in groups
But alone 
They'd be fine

1.12
One day it was mentioned
One's brother did magic
Most common convention
For mental distraction
I couldn't have know
This Way was a door
I knew it was wrong
But I couldn't be sure

Damien Davison
Tell me what you think, I turned my life and our world medieval, where drugs are replaced with magic... This is just the beginning.

Welcome and I'm sure to love the next one.
I like how you set-up the story. Using short paragraphs. Each with a reason and purpose. I like the description and the use of magic. You have my attention. I will keep reading. A excellent opening chapter.

The American system preserves its ability for original thinking but sometimes this is hard when things become too established. The folks on top don't tolerate someone rocking the boat.

I believe this is the magic drugs bring to the experience. Its like a game of blindman's bluff to get a person not to take what's there too seriously. Great work on the arrangement and structure of the poem. Creates a reference to many sources and is not a droning complaint. Your father?

So true.
So your mother remarried and has a son with her new partner and at the same time you moved home. A lot for a kid to deal with. and keeping in with the kids on the street.
