There Was One That A Pure Golden Earth Sought

There Was One That A Pure Golden Earth Sought

There was one that a pure golden earth sought,
Free from calamities mortals are caught:
But shades of darkness wrap our mortal coils,
As dawn's bright rays compete against dark's foil,
Bringing sorrows that oft bludgeon and maul
That scourge of night's irrepressible fall,

In cavernous pits sleeping souls may seep,
Lost and wailing from woes immensely deep:
With the heartaches, life's many broken dreams,
Doomed to failure by Fate's conniving schemes,
Sacrifices made and life vows broken
When man pays truth on falsified tokens,

Yet one may find Light's rewarding treasure,
In great bounty, beauty of love's pleasures:
Its ember glows that soothe consuming fears,
Preventing dirge of loneliness and tears
Heavenly delights from her gentle kiss,
Vows of faithfulness free from serpent's hiss,

Promises that Light and Love both have cast
Sweetness of night's paradise thought to last:
Where joy forgives and forgets errors taught,
Bathing in victories that Love has fought
Over lies born, and gloom of blacken nights,
seeds of humanity's eternal plight!

Rhyme, ( Why Dawn's Rise, Oft Promises Hope's Treasures)

Note: Not just herein America but all over the world humanity has sank into new lows. The further away we walk from the true Light , the more sorrows we are doomed to have to embrace. Such is a universal law, same way that fire is hot...
I that once in youth thought to be a god
trampled many on dark path I trod
Until that path's fruits tore me asunder
cast away all my forbidden plunder
In despair, I again sought the true Light
Soul's repair, treasure given divine right.

Folded into ignorance, wrapped in unwillingness to know, tied up with illusions... I wonder how a poet sees the light of truth? But he does somehow. It gives hope it wasn't all for nothing. It's great, Robert.

Your poem is a message of light that shines the dark. Once again, an amazing long rhyme poem in your usual artistic style. Excellent as are a great poet, Robert.

I completely agree. Many in the world are following the path of darkness, instead of seeking the truth- and staying on that path. Once again my dear friend, your thoughts hold depth and meaning. ~ Brandy
