Rebirth

I started out writing this poem for a competition. I didn’t win. But I did get honourable mention.

The butterfly spread out its wings and plunged into the light,

All around it flowers bloomed and called the end of night,

The summer months were humid so and winter was a trying time,

But with the arrival of spring came the chance for another life,

In the far reaches of the valley the stream passed lazily by,

As, in the forest, the trees shook their branches with pride,

The animals all clustered round awaiting their elixir of life,

The waterfall gushed down the rocks to the rescue of the wildlife,

The season of life is sprung again one feels it in the air,

So never forget that after a gruelling winter, spring will always be there.

The latest news from the One Peace Band

A little sprinkle of fairy dust

A touch of ye old magic

The greed that leads to power lust

That makes the dire tragic

.

If you’re determined you can change your fate

Just by trying harder

Do the best you can

You’ll only come out stronger

.

So, take up your weapons it’s time for a fight

You know you can bring this world to light

.

So, fight it, fight it, fight it again

Fight it, fight it, fight it again, now

Fight it, fight it, fight it again

Fight it, fight it, fight it again now

Fight it

.

Your heart will be your guiding key

To open the door to success

Failure may be what you fear

But stay strong and move on

.

You are the place

You are the voice

You are the one

Now make a choice

.

Faries and mages may cast all they want

But join in the battle we need you up front

.

So fight it, fight it, fight it again

Fight it, fight it, fight it again now

Fight it, fight it, fight it again

Fight it, fight it, fight it again now

Fight it again

And beyond that we will be adding a title and an ending so stay tuned for more updates from the One Peace Band!
