Bounty of blood....

I feel the Anger of the world
 So many souls boiling black with hate
 Awaiting for the stars to scream WAR 
    One last time
I see the rage of a nation unleashed
 In the streets
Preying on one another 
  Humanity a spiders thread
Behold the gates of  HELL hath opened
 Black wings blossom and gather
   They are legion
I am not afraid
The time for Valor has not passed
If suffering is the way to the kingdom
   I offer my pain and live it
Or if a bounty of blood must be paid
  I open My veins and give it.

    This is absolutely beautiful... I love the ending so much. So powerful and potent "Or if a bounty of blood must be paid, I open My veins and give it." Amazing job, here. =]

    William, what a powerful poem! I fear that the next time "the stars scream WAR" it may indeed by the last time. Thank you for reading "Breaking." I wrote it after my husband died. Love, Carolyn
