Lone I Stand

Lone I stand, Amidst the rain unsheltered,
                               Thought of ,yet forgotten
                                   Bleeding from the cuts of words
                          Fighting the hell that is me.

                                           Behold, I do not falter
                              Clinging the ropes of tomorrow,
                                             I bathe in tears of rage.
                                 So laden me not with guilt, and sorrow
                                              But decorate me in flags
                                                    Of her name,
                           And further shall I tread through the halls of shame
                                With my head held high, to fight the War
                                                   That is my own.

    I like the way you arranged your poem. I think it makes all the expressions in it come out even more with it not being lined up like a typical poem. Congratulations on getting it featured this week.

    This is simultaneously sad and beautiful...it would make a great death metal song. Good job, and thank you for the kind comments on my own work :)
