Past

January 14, 2009
By Charles Daily, Lancaster, PA

I ponder the past and beliefs of dead
wonder how they believed in such power..
A blink of the eye and the sea runs red

They say the lad perished and people fled
They had myths of creatures that make you cower
I ponder the past and beliefs of the dead

I wonder if it was all in their heads
they say twenty twelve will be our last hour
A blink of the eye and the sea runs red

The innocent were hanged and no proof read
could golden cities be found is we scour?
i ponder the past and beliefs of the dead

Were there really people who never bled?
Dinosaurs killed by meteor showers?
A blink of the eye and the sea runs red

The most drastic is the rise of undead
the past keeps blooming like springs flowers
i ponder the past and beliefs of the dead
a blink of the eye and the sea runs red.


The author's comments:
This poem is meant to have a very deep meaning questioning what has happened in the past. But it also is questioning god and hows he works and the events in the ast were all influenced by him.
