Songs Without Music–Poetry: To a Land Unknown

Beneath the world I do dwell

And of this place I try to tell

So open up your seeking mind

And listen as my tale unwinds

 

Once on the surface I did live

A place where no one could forgive

Each person violent

Cruel and rude

The way of life was foul and crude

Dark and dank the brown grass died

To resurrect it no one tried

Ignoring all the ailing beings

Blind to all that they were seeing

No longer could I live in pain

Of knowing hatred and disdain

So leaving at a brightening dawn

I left all behind and then moved on

To find a life of colors bright

To live long and happy in the light

Walking down a sheltered cave

Peaceful, quiet, like a grave

I traveled on by curious thought

To the place where I’ve been brought

Opening up to a land unknown

Where tall and green the grass is grown

Flowers bright and colors galore

Shades I had never seen before

Cerulean skies cradling clouds

And from the sun warm rays shroud

All the brilliance in this land

Warming every grain of sand

Along the shores of sparkling lakes

All the beauty my eyes intake

My soul engulfs the peaceful air

I run free without a care

As in this place I’ve closed the gate

To that world above in a melancholy state.
