For Revenge Can Fade

For Revenge Can Fade

They attack with such haste

And our people, death has a taste

Angry and full of hate

In a depressed state.


And in the early morning of a monday

Loud explosions fill the air.

Revenge, I fear, will never fade

As more fill with despair.


And what will come of this?

More pain and misery?

Death will touch us with a kiss

There will be no victory.


It is time to forgive,

Time to move on.

It is time to live

A new day, a new dawn.


Cry those tears

When the day comes once a year.

But forget the fears

And hold onto those near.


Let's move on but never forget

That one frightful day.

Let's be done with the threats

For revenge can fade.

I'll have to agree that a lot of my poems are indeed sad for they are written during sad moments of my life but I write them too for the help of others. Glad you still liked it none the less.

Cresentmoon2007: It is quite an accomplishment to give words to sadness. That is not an easy thing to do.

This poem touches me as a brave journey through revenge: "Revenge, I fear, will never fade / As more fill with despair." You emerged on the other side, knowing what we all need to understand: "Let's be done with the threats / For revenge can fade."

Voted up, beautiful, awesome
