The Beggar And The Robber


I run onto the mountain,
I'm faster than the wind

My thought is my Pythia,
My body is an armor

My dream it is my compass
And my faith it's my shield.

I hear a voice, trying to stop me,
He just asks some of my time

"Go Beggar, Leave my mind,
Up, a glow I run to find!"

But what I saw in the dark
Was not a sign or a star

The evil robber's was the thought,
Evil robber, evil fox

He took me up onto his wings,
A joy's laugh onto his lips,

No arms, I had his fire,
And as shield I spelled his name.

Soulless corpses all my foes,
But no peace for me at all

Every night in the dark,
Voices old were stronger back.

Then again I start to run,
Even faster than I can

To the mountain I run back,
To the friend my time asked,

The crazy Beggar, dared to stand.

Στο ελληνικό είναι πιο σαφες πως πρόκειται για κάτι συμβολκό.
Στο αγγλικό μπορείς να φανταστεις πως πρόκειται και για κάποια επική ιστορια, μύθο.

I really liked this poem your word choice was excellent at creating imagery. It was a fun poem, since it made you think about what was happening. Well done!:)

This is a beautiful poem. Yet, I still think some of the words read odd with the word choice. Such as, "My thought is my Pythia, / My body is an armor" armor and Pythia don't sound good together, yet mountain and wind worked well with each other. As I probably told you many time before, I understand the struggle poets have to find those certain words XD

As well, I did find the poem a little hard to understand - though the story made sense as I was reading it, in the end I was..confused. Did the beggar learn to be a robber?

You might find it strange, I wanted to sound odd and I wanted to be not confusing and a little tricky. I can't tell if I overdid it.
Thanks!

I know it's a little tricky, but that was my purpose. A bit like a riddle, so don't expect any answer from me.
