Dark Tempest

Poem By ~~~ Leaven ~~~

Beware ye
The violent tempests of the heart
That rage through the flesh
Among men,

To thunder and hail
Upon the fields
And, render
Each harvest thin.

Then shall
The flood waters rise
Upon Virtue’s plains
To choke the humble and meek,

Drowning the memory
Of my name
Through tyranny and oppression
Unto the weak.

But causes the hand
To caress with tenderness,

Sacrifice unto me
The animal of thyself,
That tainted clothing
Of thy pride and flesh.

Breath

Let a righteous wind blow
To give unto thee
The second breath of life,

Know this…

All darkness is caused—
For light is always present.

O ye noble Israel,
The precious fruit
Of Mine olive tree.

Casteth from thee thy pride,
And taketh thee up
The yoke of humility,
