For What Lies Hidden

A collection of all my poetry in an order I think makes reading it even more fun and exciting.


25. Listen


 Can you hear them

 All calling to you?

 I can't say why and

 I can't say who

 But I know one thing

 They want you.


Grace turned around

 And spoke to Hope.

 The people were weary

 And needed a way to cope.

 They were feeling forlorn

 And looked at one another with nothing but scorn.


But Hope turned from Grace and from the people,

 Instead she looked at Peace.

 The people want war

 And this way of thinking needs to cease.

 You'll be their last resort,

 A saviour for them not to be caught.


Peace sighed deeply

 Looking down on the mass of people.

 Grace couldn't help and Hope refused

 So it was only she who could climb the steeple.

 Up she shouted to God on high,

 Peace be with you in the sky.


Then Peace returned

 To complete her duty.

 If she failed to save them

 She would lose her beauty

 But that didn't matter as much

 As getting the people in touch.


When Peace had finished this successful mission

 Joy came over to where she sat

 And spoke of all the good she'd done

 After Peace had laid the mat.

 Grace and Hope came to join

 But for their efforts got no coin.


And when all fours work on Earth was done

 They were called to heaven above.

 To Peace was granted eternal life,

 Joy earned herself a turtle dove

 But to Grace and Hope came

 Nothing but the granting of a new name.


And let that be a lesson

 For all to learn from;

 For Peace and Joy did good things

 And were not sucked into a maelstrom.

 But Grace and Hope have been forgotten

 Known now as nothing more than cotton.
