Dragon creed

Our wings are shelter

For the weak

Our souls meek

We shun the glitz and glitter

Though we’re born of stars

 

The old code

Is more than adage

Not mere tale

Past glory

We have none to assuage

That time may erode

 

Soul swollen

Eternal homage

Bursts in me

Thwarted plea

Now forgotten I don’t flee

The waking moments

 

Bosoms bare

The heart of thunder

You wonder

Why not fear

The shield is but for the feud

No destiny’s spear

 

Knave and lewd

They gather hell’s fire

Rake fallen

Spew desire

There is a riddle I admire

She says it on Nile

 

We crawl slow

Then we stand proud tall

Before age

And fate’s weight

Curb in us the springy gait

And three are our legs

 

We cover

Our humanity

And frailty

Saucy words

Invisibility’s cloak

Weapons of the mind

 

There is truth

In between the lies

Where we find

Redemption

Overhauling weaknesses

Pennies in the sun

 

They shine slight

She innerves them light

Tolerance

Daily task

In their brittle light I bask

Counting my changes

  1. Change is inevitable but I love that the potency of your words remain the same. I can add no more that what has already been said, my friend. A finely crafted piece of work that carries epic weight.

  2. wow, this is…amazing and yet that word just doesn’t do your poem justice. It’s resonant.

    “Dragon creed

    Our wings are shelter

    For the weak” — this is an encapsulation of one of my unpublished books! 🙂

    “Our souls meek

    We shun the glitz and glitter

    Though we’re born of stars.” — I have another unpublished book where the opposite is the premise (there are dragons in this story too). I’m loving these parallels!

    “We cover

    Our humanity

    And frailty

    Saucy words

    Invisibility’s cloak

    Weapons of the mind” — so true, we are our own worst enemy and we use only our minds to do the greatest amount of damage to ourselves by denying that:

    “There is truth

    In between the lies

    Where we find

    Redemption

    Overhauling weaknesses

    Pennies in the sun” – redemption indeed is a penny in the sun, it seems like so small a thing until you pile them up and yet, we can’t help but want those pennies of redemption because of their attractive shine. Who among us can resist picking up a penny on the sidewalk?
