Some new work :)

World at it's Knees

The world fell to it's knees,
I turned my head, to the open endless seas,
To the beat of a broken anthem,
Wrapped up in symbols, held randsom.

I couldn't fight the light, 
My mind caught in a fevered plight,
The pages ripped from fragile spines,
Like victims pulled from forced lines.

The world is lying on it's face,
Ripped like roots from the ground with haste,
I hope to see the sun of tomorrow,
Till then, I embrace the sky with sorrow.

  I thought the first stanza was your strongest that pulled me right in. The last 2 lines of the whole work are very powerful. "pages ripped from fragile lines." great creative work usage. Very impressed and the more i read it over and over the more i really do enjoy it. Now, for the meaning to me. The world like everything is a victim of entropy and was designed to break down as soon as it was created. That's the horrifying and beauty of life to me. Either at a spiritual center of physical shell we are all damaged and battered. So, i just figured embrace any emotion but treat it as a wave. You maybe angry but don't be anger let it flow through you and embrace it but don't hold on to it. We use emotion to experience this ride we call life we are not these emotions. A really enjoyable piece Thank you for sharing.
