Prevail- an original poem

Study 4 by Ayah Alghamry
Study 4” by Ayah Alghamry

In an age of songs,
legends are lost,
bent and broken until
they are not the same tale.
Heroes are erased,
villains repainted,
destinies misplaced,
fates fabricated.

In an age of legends,
songs are re-versed,
twisted and turned over
until hymns fall out of tune.
Choruses crumble,
notes are reprised,
bards weep and rumble;
the lyrics are lies.

In an age of uncertainty,
what will I be?
Will I be remembered
for all history?
Or will the tongues betray me,
and time warp my tale-
will I be erased?
Or will I prevail?
