Chain PNG by AbsurdWordPreferred by SorcererWithAPen

If Truth had a tongue

All your armies, all your men

All your hate, against a pen


Struggling poet

Broken words


Cold still coffee

Broken birds  

Against a boy- stone in hand

Tightening hands on rubber band


In his eyes see brightening hope

To strengthen (still) the breaking rope


Of justice, rights and human love

As airplanes hover up above

And I wonder, hands are shaking

Faith is crumbling, words are breaking


Torn up hope and spirits broken,

Muting people when words are spoken,


Time is racing against a pen,

And I wonder once again,


Who is weak, and who is strong?
Who is right, and who is wrong?

And I wish, whilst blood is dripping

Chains are beating, whips are whipping


See the image- bleeding men

Hear the clock chime- broken pen


Again I wonder and I wish


If only the truth had words to speak

Words to tell when days are bleak


Peace to spread when nights grow cold

Separating lead from gold


Hands to warm when corpses lie

Their people hate, our people die

And I wonder, now I think

We as people, stand as none

Enemy lines all stand as one

OK. So I haven't been updating for a while now but I hope this poem makes up for it. It's got a very simple rhyme scheme and I kept it that way for a reason! Critiques are welcomed- though please do try and give reasons for each statement you make :> I am currently trying to improve my writings but you can't really impress everyone can you? If there is one person who likes your work there has to be one person who doesn't... but that's fine since everyone has their own likes and dislikes :-)

So anyway hope you like the new poem it's got a lot of different...erm ideas... to it. Thank you for the birthday wishes and to Ikoter and lunatical-miracle for the points! Oh and to ikoter, I will get around to doing the second part of confessions of a King soon! 

Enough of my...'description'
