Leo Borgelin | 2 comments We Were Once Gods

We were once Gods,
living high in the mountain tops
Free of order, roaming the free land,
The day was young, but it had yet to grow,
Giving time the opening to run aimlessly

But then the day grew old,
Time limited itself, order became my captor
holding me with its bare hands as time marks my new boundaries,
I now sit on a flat land with no ups and downs
Restricted to travel a day's worth abroad my new land,
Never again are we to reach our beloved land

The mountains were high
And the Greenland was low,
Never again we were to access our beloved land,
Foreign to us as we now know it,
But still strong in our roots
To only serve as a reminder to what kind of life we once lived,
As our only option we helped these new Gods grow,
Nurturing the Gods because they remind us of what was once ours,

For we too were once in their land,
As we had fallen from the mountain tops,
They will do accordingly,
Side by side in the land where time age,
No longer in the Mountains where youth persist
For this is the life of us Gods

Elie N. Azar (elienazar) | 5 comments We push away people who
bring back old feelings
light up fires we wanted to keep extinguished
bring down walls we wanted to keep so high.
We do it out of fear love despair.
We do it because we know how sweet love is
but how bitter it can become.
We do it because we don’t want another face to become a memory
another voice to become a melody
another song to become a remedy

Give my book a go!
