The Traveller

More by this author
The arc of leaves slowly fell
On the deserted path.
The traveler bravely stood
On the aftermath of the battle.

Colors rained from the sky
Painting the world a view
Of the year leaving and
The year to come.

The traveler bent his knees
And knelt there
Amid destruction and formation
Of the world and
Its inhabitants.

The ground sighed,
Slow and sweet.
But none shall answer
For none shall hear.

But the traveller,
The fighter,
The artist,
The savior,
Poor man of all names,
Each holding its own regard
For its own abilities,
Is feeling the end come again.

A lock of hair
Falls flat on his forehead,
Limp as his heart
And the leaves above.

As the traveller of many titles
Falls to the ground in a heap
To end the battle and
End time.

Hey there! I really liked the title, it was very appealing. And I love this poem so much, I really enjoyed reading this from beginning to end. It flowed really nice even without rhyming. I'd love to see this continued and I'd love to learn more about the person this is based on. Great job!

Since you've said that, I think that I'll start right now! It'll be his childhood, sort of but it won't be out for a while since TeenInk takes so long to be submitted! I have like four other things waiting right now, one poem and three fictional short stories! If you guys don't care, when they come out, please check them out!

My goodness. I want to know more about the story behind this poem. If you ever decide to make a series of poems about what happened, let me know.

Will do! Thanks for commenting! I probably will soon, I've been fiddling around with this poem, trying to find out where to start again! I've got more poems along the way of this kind, they just have to be submitted first!
