Like Mother, Like Son

by Phoenix Sol

Age Group: Adult



A cross, tall and silver
stood above a wide pit, waiting
for a purpose. They had stolen
my mother’s clothes as they make her
walk to her to the cross.
They tied her tightly to her fait so they
could make certain she would never escape.
The pit began to glow and the flames
leaped at Mother’s exposed skin.
Her scream was carried to me on
waves of Wind, who was trying to
lend me strength to make in through.
The crowd cheered.
And I cheered with them.
Eyes were piercing into me
as they wondered if I would be the next to join.
After the deed was done, and order
among the people could not be found,
I escaped into the trees.

Now they drag me home and I can still
smell the ash of my mother that was
scattered years before. They steal my clothes
and drag me over to meet my metal fait.
The crowd continues to grow with faces
of people I cannot recognize,
and my childhood friends.
They light the pit and the crowd cheers.
I feel the soft, searing touch as Fire
is told to devour someone he had loved.
Wind carries my screams that hold the secrets
that have driven them to take
my mother, myself and many others.
And the lies that have driven me to
welcome it.




Author's Notes: This is a poem I wrote to show a story I remember well from a past life. It is a story to show what the child went through when he was left behind.
