Poem By Michael Foster

I find myself trapped in a cage and
I yell and shout and am consumed by rage
I cannot see through my fateful bars
Nor feel the wind or see the stars

I stalk around my dreaded cell
And I scream my anger and my sorrow I yell
My life was joy and gleeful race
Until I strayed into this place

As I my situation start to ponder
My slugged mind begins to wander
And I dream of dreams and think of though
And imagine what is what can be not

The monster within begins the stir
And with every casting word
The sky is torn and the earth is rent
And to hell my soul is sent

And when the beast I think I've quelled
Begins to rise and crush and meld
I raise my shield and draw my sword
And delve into the evil unrestored

When I glimpse the strife and worry
And the world is filled with fury
Forth, I am ripped from stem to stern
From tail to tip I have been turned

Then I wake to see the earth
And every soft and loving hearth
The sun is out and oh! The stars ring
And god summons the angels to sing

The Isle Of The Dead

In waters murky far away
In waters dismal and dark far from places bright and gay
Away from where the living are
In silent waters beneath the stars

Dismal Sea

Throughout the dark and somber years
My fear is ever churning
Within my cries and dreaded tears
I feel the constant yearning


When the sun has set and the moon peaks nigh
When the stars sing bright in the summer sky
When the trees wave silent and the grasses hiss
That's when I'll be content, with all of this

Does The Light Mean Day

How do you unlock the secrets, into someone's inner soul
How do you fill a goblet, which has never been full
How do you plant an oak tree, on ground that's dry and hard
How do you repair a friendship, that's in a million shards

Light And Dark

When you think of darkness, and when you think of light
Do you think of goodness, do you think of fear

Is the light really what it seams

Sweet Earth

Burrowed within the ground where demons creep
And soaring above earth in the azure sky
Gliding though the oceans blue and deep
This is where I lie
