Legacy of Defeat

Legacy of Defeat

A Poem by OliviaOwens

Once again the skies have darkened
Over a life that was unburdened,
The darkness slowly found her victim
Unrelenting in her dictum.

Her grasp is strong and merciless
She’s brave and timeless in her quest.
No running, hiding, or bemoaning
Will keep you safe from her embracing.

She’s out for blood and wants your soul
She’ll stop at nothing to get all.
Your life to her it does not matter
Another bonus; bigger, better.

She found me and I’m all alone
No cavalry to fight; I’m on my own.
She’s strong and tough and heartless
My pleas to her forever endless.

Peace, light and happiness I want returned
She doesn’t hear me; all that she’s spurned.
She’s gaining ground and I’m losing
This battle she’s so great at winning.

I fight her trying to be brave
But in the end I see a grave,
A grave that’s peaceful, laying claim
To the defeated girl who bears my name.

Another fantastic poem. It is so filled with feelings and I find that very appealing. I love the last stanza the most. I felt the words in my heart. Great job Olivia! -Kali

Hi Olivia,
Thank you for entering my little contest.
I cannot comment now as this would be unfair to other entries.
I shall return after the contest ends.
Best regards.
