Alice Got Free

by Llywelyn

Age Group: Adult

Listening to voices past
Their message echo everlast
Will my voice be heard?
Will the people read my words?
When I'm gone
Turned to dust
Where there's no more words to write
When my final time has come
When my struggles are final and done
When this fight I've definitively won
Will my message echo, last?
Reverberating from the past?
Will it touch some future soul
I don't, I can't, will never know
Touching on some common woe
Though by time inextricably separate
Connected by themes and feelings literate
And everything I do by Gods iterate

What is this hunger
That I sate?
What is its nature
From whence does it spring?
What is its source?
What is the nature of its being?

Why is the power of things once said,
So much more when those that spoke them
Now are dead?
I sit and listen to his passionate
Pain-filled voice
His words of anguish, poignant bare
Stripped of deceit that hides the pain
Unholy confession to keep him sane
And yet I find in the words I hear
Encouragement to others to carry on
A theme of power meant to save
Them from destruction that we crave
You and I and even he
From his struggles he created
Poetry sweet that alleviated
My sea of sorrow overflowing
Never met and never knowing
How much his words meant to me
How I was touched and was set free
May your soul rest in peace
And fly now on, away from pain
Away from sorrow, guilt, and shame
And in that ethereal world to wait

For I shall meet with you some day
And finally share with you my story
Of how your struggles were not in vain
That made me feel it was ok
To feel the way I feel today
Because of you my erstwhile friend
Though while in life apart, estranged
You were a light in shadows dark
And for this you'll be repaid
If ever I can make it be arranged
I will find your fleeting soul
And tell you of these uncommon things
Wait for me amongst the stars
My erstwhile inspiration muse
And one day we'll share such timeless truths

With this earnest line I say:
Thank you Alice, be free from your chains.
