    Default A poem about Roland that will open my upcoming novel

    This man and King's writing has inspired me and my life...This will be the first thing the few people that read my novel will lay eyes on...Long days and pleasant nights my friends....


    My Tower
    ------------

    within that meadow i do see

    my past; my future in front of me



    everything ive loved

    everything is near

    this is my destiny

    Why's there fear


    The roses shine like a beating sun

    Tis no end like a smoking gun



    The red king looks down below

    My harp sings

    But did i grow



    have i used and have i gained

    have i fought through all this pain



    ive sacrificed my whole life

    missing fingers and my daddy's wife



    i made my path along the beam

    Chosen hell is all it seemed



    but i did it my own way

    i'd walk for my tower till my judgement day

    Richard - I have moved your thread here, where we usually post our DT-related writings

    The poem is beautiful. Thank you!

    I still had some honor. I still have some now.

    Good stuff. I like it when novels give you snippets of other work at the beginning to set up the mood.

    I love that this forum allows people to post their own writing. I had entire threads of mine deleted at the SKMB because they contained fiction that I wrote myself. They didn't even allow my poems, although I know they allowed other people's. For some reason the moderator hated me. But all the men at that forum got coddled and treated like royalty because there were so few of them. Women are like that wherever I go.
