Lies of the Promised Land

Jul 11, 2021 | Poetry

Far from the Golden Fields,
I have long ventured
To finally find the Truth.

I carry no weapon, none that shields.
O great vessel, now old and weathered,
Of once proud Mother’s son, give him ruth.

I ventured into the Shadowy Lands,
Far from home, family and peace…
Pursuing a promise proved to be lie.

The old prophesised Promised Lands,
Nothing but a prison of no release…
Time to say my Farewells to the Sky.
