Arise! Arise!

Arise! Arise!
Pick up your swords and carry your shields, oh sisters.
Mount your horses and follow in line, oh brothers.
Raise up your voice, abandon your whispers.
Let us depart from those who failed, our fathers and mothers.

Stand strong! Stand strong!
It will be these Titans who will fall,
they will be crushed, ruined and destroyed.
Yet we, we will meet in Golden Hall
tasting the sweetness of victory – overjoyed.

Arise! Arise!
Now, now is the time of blood and fire;
it is our song sung by Freedom’s own choir.
Now, now is the time of blood and pain,
for this is the time for us to reign.

Be strong! Be strong!
No dark terror ever rules forever.
No nightly horror can ever swallow the sun.
These Demons are brutal and fierce, however
we will neither rest nor stop till all are gone.

Arise! Arise!
For a new day has come at last.
Open your eyes and look up: the end is nigh. The skies
shall reveal the ending day of our victorious quest;
a sword-day, a red-day, ere the sun rises!

I have also started to read your others works, and will review them when finished. Keep going. Never stop.

maxniederhofer: Kara,I loved this. The one suggestion I would make is to show me, don't tell me. E.g."Now look at your skin / It is beautiful / You are beauty pure."It might be better to use more evocative imagery and language to make me feel, i.e. truly comprehend, the pure beauty, rather than telling me it is ...

Barbara Ivusic: I really loved this poem. Perfect use of imagery to outline the digital age. I loved the image of the olive branch and how it is posted for all to see but no one can touch it. Everything you describe is so true that it has become common knowledge yet no one acknowledges it anymore. I look forward...
