Poem of the Day: Shields

(This poem was written for my “Lost Souls” poetry series)

Shields

Night falls
over my lost souls.

They stand strong
against
the Dark Knights.

One by One
they hold up
their shields:

The angry one holds up
desire;
The gentle one holds up
love;
The little one holds up
grief;
The creative one holds up
hope;
The mad one holds up
rage;
The sensible one holds up
knowledge!

My lost souls
and
their shields
shine:

Shine on
Dark Knights;

Shine on
a new life;

Shine on
and on
and on

and
Dark Knights
Power
is
broken!
