Yearns To PersistIn a forest in deepest wildernessYearns To Persist by NathanielFlyingOwl
A tiger strides in stealth
Always alert, always majestic...
But with fear in heart...
Fear of loneliness, fear of coming death
For an age is coming, to die...
But the strength keeps him alive, the strength of the tiger
...Is the desperation to live
To live as long and as well as one can
The desire to persist and to thrive at all costs
In feast and in famine, in peace and in trial
He yearns to persist...
In the vicious cycle of eternity, he breathes, for life...
For survival, till the end, of our times.
Rubai Of SorrowAs midnight becomes a memory, do you lustRubai Of Sorrow by NathanielFlyingOwl
For dawn's caress, for your body to become dust?
Do you often lie awake haunted by nightmares
That make you doubt all that you see as fair and just?
Breathe Love Like AirBreath love like air, and liveBreathe Love Like Air by NathanielFlyingOwl
Return from the darkness
Embrace all life as kin
And let peace touch your heart
The saccharine kiss of
Hope can make bitterness
Evolve on cynics' tongues
Leaving an aftertaste
Vanquished are the moments
Engulfed in innocence
Life does not let you live
In perfect happiness
Kisses of destiny
Either raze or nourish
A man's deepest beliefs
In pure honesty, I-
Repeat, breath love like air
A Poet's EchoCan poetry be felt in the blood, in the veinsA Poet's Echo by NathanielFlyingOwl
with each lyric being harmonized through dreams slain
Each epic speaking of places both far and nigh
With each melancholic elegy seeping pain?
Can verse performed by thunderstorms in the sky
Be what compels us to express our hearts, to cry?
How many poems have been written using tears
As ink, written until our souls have been bled dry?
Have decades of weeping filled the seas with our fears
And our nightmares penetrated mountains likes spears?
Can a poet's echo resound beyond the chain
Of mortality and fate's tyrannical leer?
