War Of Life; A Poem
Poetry is art; much like a painting, people can get different messages from the same piece of work.
I am sure that people will get their own ideas from the poem that follows. The words just fell into my lap today.
After the poem I will explain my thoughts and reasoning behind this work. Scroll down and read the poem and feel free to comment on your thoughts.
War Of Life
A grand entrance;
Gates of despair.
Mourning will wait
As darkness fulfills.
By torches in the hearts
Of pity and sacrifice.
The dawning arrives.
New life; a birth.
The past begets
A consequence of choice.
The relapse attains victory
As funeral bells chime.
The needle finds
Death's battle won.
Child enters Eden;
Mommy sinks to hell
He comes from upon high;
New life; a birth.
Stepping into infinity
Darkness is dispelled.
Divine light shines.
My Thoughts and Reasoning
As you can surely read, this poem I wrote today has much darkness entwined within it.What was going on within my mind as writing this?
Picture a young couple in love with each other and with drugs. The young man dies of a drug overdose and the young girl has found she is pregnant. She gives birth to a baby and doctors discover that the drug use of the couple has drastically affected the baby.
The baby dies.
The mother goes back to the drugs but cries out in desperation and God hears her. Be it an Angel, just a Christian man or Jesus Christ himself, the girl is helped and finds new life in Christ.
Her life is saved. Yes her man and her baby have died , but her life is saved.
What Drugs Do
I know all to well what drugs can do. I praise God that my children all came out healthy. Many children don't.
I did not put what type of drug the girl was doing in the poem because it could be any. You name the drug and I can point out adverse effects from it. The common drugs that are used in needles are: heroin, cocaine, methamphetamine and other pharmaceutical drugs are broke down and put into needles all for a brief feeling of pleasure, numbness or power.
We have become a drug world; have a headache, take a tylenol. Have a cold, drink alka seltzer plus; so on and so forth. Doctors have become drug dealers to get kickbacks from the drug companies. This people is not teaching the kids to stay off drugs; it is doing the opposite.
Drugs have hurt us much more than helped us. That is my opinion and I am sticking to it. God gave us many things in nature to relieve all that ails us and even more so, we are to pray. Our bodies were made to be self-healing. By taking drugs we break down the immunities that God gave us to ward off these diseases and sickness.
I pray that mankind will get off the drugs. I hope this poem will help.
If you know someone who is fighting a battle against a drug demon, please share this hub with them. Just maybe it will help!
