Promise Never Broken

Sitting on the edge of earth,
I watch the flames below.
When the devil is done
It will all be nothing but ash.
A once perfect world, destroyed
By the sin we couldn’t control.

I am one lonely straggler
That the evil didn’t take.
One of so few left now
Who were not cremated by fury.
Now we stand alone,
Wondering what is in store next.

Behind me a brilliant light,
And a most powerful voice,
“Come and fight with me,
And ill promise you peace again.”
I take his out stretched hand,
And I’m welcomed to his land.

We all wait for 1,000 years
In what I call a paradise,
For the devil to do his deeds,
And be overcome when evil runs dry.
Then with his mighty hands
God rebuilds our earth once more.

We all live here again,
With our God and our savior.
He never breaks a promise,
So we all live without pain,
Because death is now a past,
And love is all that is left.

Add a comment.yes great poem,i can relate..
Clapping hands! Yes it is like that for a family which has sent deeper roots in love.I love all of your poems and comments you give.
When I read your poem for a second time the thought struck me that we believe in a God who loves us beyond compare and then there is the parent who loves us beyind compare, together God and parent make the world safe, blessed, and happy. What a great start to life in their combined love! And you - we - can always return to those memories for strength and comfort. Your poem will keep this idea alive..
