Listen

Oh listen to the attenuated roar…
the same sound we heard before…
There once was light in the distant…
the days when the world was still infant…
Listen to the forge of steel…
darkness will return not to heal…

Oh listen to the many voices in grief…
the same sound that remove every belief…
There once before were faith in sight…
the gathering of all days in one night…
Listen to the words of those to lead…
ashes of light is what remain after the heat…

Oh listen to the apprehensive voice of your child…
civilization lost and gone wild…
Listen to the fearful words…
will the Sun still give tomorrow a birth…
these words and voices really hurt..

Oh listen to the lonely sound of the last child breathing…
the same sound we all made dying from what we bring…
There once was a future so bright…
the ending of days in the short blazing light…
Listen to your heart’s bravest song…
maybe there is still time to be strong…

Oh listen to these words spoken in your head…
the same sound we all hear as we make our last bed…
There once was a morningsun glowing in gold…
the end of glorious days and no one to hold…
Listen to the forge of eternal darkness…
there will come no more days and nights to bless…

About jachso

Hey Destiny Poets. I live in Denmark about 90 km from Copenhagen and works in Roskilde as a teacher and mentor. I'm probably not like most men of my age and yes I am aged 50 years old. I've tried a lot of jobs without finding what I'm passionate about. Writing, I have always loved and I was probably just 14 years old when I produced my first poem. I have not yet been released some of my poems, but I hope it happens one day. I just finished a novel which I would like to have published, now the time and talent show whether I have the ability to write. Poetry has a special meaning for me and this is where I really feel at home. My life has sometimes been marked by many losses. In the mid eighties, I lost my fiance at the time when the accident happened was pregnant. She lost control of the car and drove herself and her child, who was on his way thereby, to death. It has really made its mark on my life and way of thinking. In the late nineties, I had problems with my back and had to seek other avenues to support myself. I finally decided to enroll at university and was admitted to the humanist line. I read philosophy, science, psychology, journalism and history, but philosophy and psychology is my major interest. I thrive today in the RUC aka Roskilde University just 25 km from Copenhagen. My job is to guide and teach, and it is a job with speed and that gives me a lot again. I have two collections of poems ready to be released, if I can find a publisher who will publish them. I have no children, it would obviously be my lot in life although I have tried, but luck never smiled at me that way. If you have any questions for me so I hope you just ask away all you want, I'll respond as soon as I have read the questions. With kindest regards from Jan Sorensen
