the four

the four

A Poem by Worms

how did it happen


there were once only four

two brothers and their sisters

then they decided that there should be more


the world back then was dark and bleak

and there was no earth so to speak


they gave their souls to make new life

they changed themselves for greater good

but their change was not without strife


they each had lost all they wanted

and by this all their souls were haunted


the brothers, now known as air and earth

could not get near each other

their sisters forced too great a berth


the thought of this drove them youngest to cry

to the one in the stone from the other in the sky


the sisters now, called by water and fire

could not get away from the other 

increasing greatly their brothers' ire


for they fight and will not halt

till one is ash and the other sea salt


this is how we came to life

by the one who watches over them

to alleviate the siblings strife


air and earth meet once again

while water and fire are contained


we wonder why our world is so

but all you need do is listen

and eventually you will know
