Elixir

( A Licentia Rhyme Form written for OctPoWrMon- Day5)

An elixir for the wounded and fallen
To heal and bring life to a world crestfallen
I wish to heal them, but bruises cover me
Pinning me to the unknown depths I cant flee
I ain’t alone, strange echoes fill this darkness
Echoes of the ages long forced to stillness
Bruises hurt me from within, but hope persists
So I’ll strive till my end, though the world resists
I mark my words and bruises as my power
And share those among the echoes that tower
An elixir for the wounded and fallen
To heal and bring life to a world crestfallen.

True, it ain’t easy when hurtful tears blind you
And sore hearts and minds rip you out of the blue
Your pain entertains many, so be wary
Judgements may enslave you, yet don’t be dreary
To overcome the strongest fear, face the worst
Not as helpless souls accursed to exist,
But as beings worthy of an existence
Worthy of rights, worthy of words and of voice.
Worthy enough to create your own pathways
Pathways full of grave mistakes and learnt lessons
An elixir for the wounded and fallen
To heal and bring life to a world crestfallen.

In our journey to unveil the hidden truths
Often we go astray, as shown by the facts
Know so then, you’re in quest of an elixir
Divine enough to help and soothe another
Maybe, words ain’t enough to show your true goal;
But doing my part, as a lost and found soul.
Gratitude fills within me as I recall
All who never ceased to give up as I fell
In my quest to heal a wounded world, so lost
I fail again, yet I’m stronger at all cost
An elixir for the wounded and fallen
To heal and bring life to a world crestfallen.

Thank you for reading😊😊

  1. This was wonderful and uplifting. Uplifting is hard to do, because the line between that and cheesy is precariously thin. You, on the other hand, landed gracefully on the uplifting side of things and, gotta say, love that “circle back to the start” ending. Wonderful poem!
