I saw the gods – poem

death crowned

I saw the gods

.

Fighting each other

Like little old boys

Playing with words &

Playing with bombs

.

I saw the gods

The old & the young

Simpletons & fools

The proud & the Proud

.

I saw the gods

.

Claiming the power

Over life & death

I saw the gods &

I saw them scared

.

I saw evil queens

I saw sluggish kings

Greedy advisers & their royal rings

Aided by strong winds

& powerful wings

.

They seemed far away

Yet, I was concerned

I knew that our world

Was connected to theirs

.

I saw the gods

.

Yes, Attention Paid

I saw the gods

I prayed & I prayed…

.

Then, I saw my God

He said I was blessed

Yes, He said I mustn’t be

Fearful nor depressed.

.
