Bells of History Chimes

The bitter taste from years of pain
He struggles to keep on living..the fight
Only time will tell if it was all in vain
Wishes for higher powers to never see his plight
Will history grant him with the award to tell the tale
Or simply just wipe his Earthly legacy away with time
To a time and existence where only indifference prevail
Its a bitter pill to swallow..letting the bells of history chime



A.Ertsland

    I hope this means you are coming back to the soup. Arlid, i hope this fight is won. I wish we could hide and hope all goes well, and hear the beautiful bells, when the years of pain is over. I wonder if I take them pills, would i hear more than bells. I love this poem. it is always nice hearing from you. ~Tiger Tex

    ok, Arild, I took your advice and withdrew the first haiku I wrote from that contest and put in another one posted a few years ago here, and I should have known better when I wrote THAT one.
