Raven's Task

  I look to the Heaven’s for our Father to come I am now living in a realm between 
Heaven and hell below my feet I hear the growling of the beast his minions hackling 
clawing at me at first I am wondering why the others sleep soundly in their coffins 
and I am but awake then the great spirit speaks you are to protect the land of the 
dead, In these coffins rest the souls of the Almighty The devil will send many to 
disturb their slumber Here is the weapon that you will use to fight them Use it well 
God has a special place for you Raven I smile and nod eager to fulfill His duty There 
is a greater peace within me now I am not afraid I clutch the gun tightly and make 
ready to aim days go by and I have yet to see a demon at first I assumed this task 
would somehow be easier when I was to see a demon pull the trigger and send him 
back to hell They must be toying with me Maybe they’re waiting to see how long it 
takes me To crack to give up and join them They can’t have me I am a servant of 
God I’m Better than this I sit down on a giant rock elevating me above the tombs 
Being here is weighing on my heart I have no one to talk to there’s no warmth to be 
felt I can’t even sleep for there is no need for it anymore what am I to do to keep 
my sanity when I am the only one living among the dead and I’m not even alive In 
the distance I start to see what looks like a formation of bats flying around madly 
and then a sudden chill crawls up my spine I stand up tall upon the edge of the 
jagged rock feeling as if something is about to happen

    I had only read a couple of the poems and wanted so badly to enter but...too many things were going on and didn't get to. I knew Constance would have a time selecting her winners. There is a long list of winners here. You should be so proud of your winning poem congratulations Virginia. Love, Carol
