Frozen river

Updated on February 9, 2016

My first poem


Frozen river

Sweet fallen embrace of death come forth,

Taste the human’s pitiful sorrow grace,

Rejoice in their decadent ways of late,

Show no mercy in the final hours of discontent.


There is no need for weeping, Children,

The reapers grip is quick and painless

Salvation lacks of hope and dreams,

Illusions fade; just close your mortal eyes

It’s time to leave this wretched world.


The fields of everlasting glory

For which you fought all of your life,

Are waiting clearly on the other side

The blight of day and calm blue sky,

Your turn it’s now, enjoy the ride.


You mortals grind shadows of southing future

Don’t cry for man, he is but late

To catch a train in heaven’s station,

Becoming one with loving tension,

In ancestral promise of redemption

The single thing worth fighting for,

The warm embrace of God’s reflection.
