Revelations and Destruction in Poetic Form

Updated on September 16, 2011

When I turn on the media all I hear about is destruction. Massive world news, exploding catastrophes, and chaos.

One day everything will be revealed. One day all the destruction will come to an end. The media won't be able to report it because it will be destroyed.

This poem was written a day before the massive earthquake hit. It reveals truths from the book of Revelations. One day total destruction will change the world and a new earth will be born.

Japan is hurting, our prayers are living. Speaking the truths of words written long ago, we will start over. Until that day comes all we can do is have faith and pray.

Revelations

an aftermath

Of Destruction.

Laying down

In the ashes

Dust blows.

Breathing

A stink of horror.

Darkness found

Imaginations of wild

Snakes in the grass

Spitting venom.

Surrounding the flowers

Choking the stems

Ants crawl up

Disease sets in

Source

 

Plagues

Like unexpected fevers

That plague at night.

Dramatic changes

Occur in the wake

of morning.

Hollering cries of pain

Treacherous souls

Who know nothing

And everything.

Are You Fearless

Revelation

Appearing

Peculiar and weird

In life’s twists

Turn in an instant.

 

Redemption

And favor

In the blistering

Heat.

Purposely driven

Out of my mind

 

Free spirits

Dance

Under the moonlight

Speaking words

Of truth

In my mind.

Destructive forces

Source

Rainbow appears

 

Painfully aware

Of the ugliness

A search

For answers

Spits the fire

From the mouth

Of the beast

 

Unknown

To man

The fierce

Is stricken down

In an instant

 

The crusaders

Arrive

In white covered

Robes

Flying bright

Swords whipping

The air

 

Exposing the lies

The dragon

Is sheared

Ruins explode

Dirt is shaken

Earth is rumbling

 

A new day

Has broken

Bright lights

Blinding the eye

With luminescent

Colors

Of the rainbow

 

Radiant glow

Of deep seas

Surrounding clouds

A misty rain

Lightly falls

Washing away

The pain

And sorrow

 

Brightness

And hope

Awaits

A new earth

Is born

 

The King

Arrives

On His

White stallion

 

Redemption

King of Kings

"I saw heaven standing open and there before me was a white horse, whose rider is called Faithful and True. With justice he judges and wages war. His eyes are like blazing fire, and on his head are many crowns. He has a name written on him that no one knows but he himself. He is dressed in a robe dipped in blood, and his name is the Word of God. The armies of heaven were following him, riding on white horses and dressed in fine linen, white and clean. Coming out of his mouth is a sharp sword with which to strike down the nations. “He will rule them with an iron scepter.” He treads the winepress of the fury of the wrath of God Almighty. On his robe and on his thigh he has this name written:

KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS"

Revelations 19:11-16

      Deep, intense, passionate, and great job.

      The terrible destruction and pain, followed by the washing away of all evil.

      Very nice.

      I like this very dynamic poem based on the words below it titled Redemption. The words remind me of the words I read somewhere about the idea of God being nameless in ancient Hindu tests called the Vedas. So in meditation instead of using names for God which could never adequately describe Him they use the word "That" because n matter what image you conjure up of God with your mind it is not "That". Nice work and very apt in light of the recent earthquake and tsunami in Asia.
