King Damastocles

King Damastocles sonnet poems

Photo by Xubaet

My afflicting Evil precedes our God
himself; at dawn was born in turbulent
oceans, sunken ravines that few had trod,
ripe with fruits of ever-present torment.
People rejoiced at my each rising word,
trees uproot with the gesture of my hand.
Though I am shepherd to my joyous herd,
no more joy have I in rule, nor command.
I feel my hidden beat hissing faintly.
My palace is but a prison of dread;
so unrelentlessly, unceasingly
do ancient curses echo from the dead.

Now he treads in swamps of malevolence,
forever trapped in blind obedience.

The Butterfly has awoken And rightfully emerged from his cocoon What makes it so beautiful is Not the wings or image Of itself But the beauty of its flawlessness Mindset in this breath Taking shattering world It already being so
