Poetry. The Staircase by R.A. Lovelace

Poetry. Today a new amazing poem by R.A. Lovelace: The Staircase. Enjoy it! It’s worth, Yareah Magazine friends.

The Staircase
The staircase was, in ancient timesa way to reach divineto greet the sky and wonderto leave earth in search of thunder.Then the gods were harsherthey punished every sin

so when you walked the stairway

your life started to begin.

As the stairway made it’s way

from ancient to refined

the steps that showed the way to life

became a dream in human minds.

Slowly dreams became the myths,

the legends told in rhymes

the gods were known in stories

but all prayers to them were crimes.

So as legends whispered partial truths

and wandered lost in time

humanity roared about it’s life

and spread their unblessed rhymes.

Then the gods gave up their strength

they turned from twelve to one

and legend says this one true God

gave up his only Son.

But others held their own beliefs

that God had blessed another

great battles raged between the two

they forgot that they were brothers.

The staircase was, in ancient times

a way to reach divine

but God looked down upon the earth

and decided it was time.

Since man could not accept it’s fate

and live as brothers should

the staircase was destroyed by God

and faith was left for good.

The staircase once had given men

the means to walk with gods

but men were bent on ruin

and their lies were wrought with fraud.

For loving one another

as their God had told them to

was replaced with hatred

and mistrust became the rule.
