Hi, everyone! I just composed a poem, for an activity in school, and I liked it so I thought I’d upload it here, for everyone to see. It’s the first good poem I’ve made, as far as I remember. I hope you’ll like it.
Allegory Of Death
The spirit stood in front of me
He held with him my life, my fate,
Knew all my loves, my life, my hates.
He held me in iron bands;
Unable to move, anxious, I stood wringing my hands
Answer his riddles I should,
Or else my life end, it would.
Of the answer I searched, I thought
Despairing over what I had wrought.
Suddenly I knew what to say
From misery I had found a way.
I spoke, waited,
My breath baited.
He smiled, raised his arms
I was released; I thought he meant no harm.
I walked, slowly, ahead
Suddenly, a blade appeared, me it did behead.
In my last moments I thought of my life,
I thought, what was the meaning of all this strife?
