slam poetry: a new beginning

Posted: 21/09/2010 in slam poetry

all we ask is for a new beginning,

somewhere to start,

a pure heart,

free from hatred, free from sin,

and yet we are stopped short.

why is it that the good die young?

is it so that we sinners may live to repent?

I ask myself questions as I stare upon this empty wall,

and pray that someday I may be washed as clean,

unblemished by the ills of society,

unmarked by the beast that lies in waiting,

unleashed like a bolt of lightning

from a heavy cloud,

for I will beat the thunderclap to the ground.

a new beginning.
