Rider

Through a mystical desert he rides
His horse's nostrils breath fire
This is the land of the damned
The sun beats down mercilessly 
Yet the rider remains strong
Drawing on ancient reservoirs
A strength beyond his own

Evil has fled to this desolate place
The land of demons 
Regaining it's strength
Together they gather
Yet they are alone
Powerless to fight the rider
In his hand a two edged sword
A breast plate
Ligure prominently displayed
Glowing leading his way
A pericope ripped from the fabric of the Devine
Each word will be fulfilled
Evil thrived 
Now it will be killed

A lake of sulphur
The Devil's time expired
The rider rides
The desert revived
A new earth is formed
The King is King
In the heavens Angels sing
Tears washed away
Springs gush from the ground
Flowers abound
New Jerusalem
Quadrivial 
Four winds meet at central point
All his children gather there
Armageddon
The end of history
The revealing of all
Mysteries
The mystical
He reveals
And we sigh

Justice 

Victory

The Devil falls

    Well Richard, if the Bible were written in this form I am sure there would be a stampede in the Bible book store. Great theme, great diction and congratulations on your well deserved win :)

    My writing pales to the writing of the scripture and it is written exactly as it should be. As with most treasures it requires the reader to search it out and dig to find the gold and diamonds beneath the surface. I am however pleased that you enjoyed my artistic expression.

    WOW Richard.. such a powerful poem! The first stanza is so dark, then comes the light, hope and victory. The enemy has already been defeated, and will take another fall into hell at Armageddon-- how reassuring for us Christians to know.
