I Rise Above You

I rise above you When you look in contempt             I'll smile at you When you will fight my spirit             I give in to you You torture my one person             I fragment on you You will not capture my soul             only this husk I don't need the mortal part             you think you have The day you find me in your claws             I will be free And I will look down on you             with sorrow in my heart             pity in my eyes             a friendly word on my lips             a gentle caress I rise above you *** June 18, 2017  Copyright © Darren White

LOL, I am Empire, not Republic! I even have a seat at the Dark Council!!!!! Although, in my game they are united at the moment, working together. Isn't that awesome?

I rise up, but only to applaud! :) and I so get this!

Thanks Art :) This started after chats we had on the subject.

I am new to Poetry Soup, I have read your poem and I really liked it. I can relate to this very well. Kindness goes farther than a fist can throw. Tooth for a tooth, eye for an eye, never gets you anywhere but trouble and heartache. Be well fellow writer. :-)

Thank you Amanda :) It never gets you anywhere indeed, that's for sure.

Yes, your spirit soars, my friend. This is a heartfelt poem. No more claws (I hope), only love, love and possibly forgiveness <3

Forgiveness is perhaps asked a bit too much ;) but indeed, more positivity
