So I’ve decided to start a little thing called Writing Wednesday where I share something about my writing; a poem, an update on my book, an excerpt, writing tips, etc. I might not manage this every week, but I’m trying. Here’s today’s attempt, a poem called Farewell to My Home from my longest WIP the Maj’yk Series.
Up in the watchtower I see thee,
Standing among stone pillars, proud.
Fair and tall as yonder tree.
Your laughter is quite merry and loud.
Oh! Off to trouble I go!
Down the well worn paths of old!
Through the wind and rain and snow!
My life is not theirs to mold!
I leave behind the world I know,
From family and friends, from you I go!
For off to war I must go!
Of our strength the enemy must know!
Though chance of victory is slight!
Bloody battles there are to fight!
‘Till the enemy knows of our might!
And I return to Death’s night!
