Very well written, there is really darkness also in Our world and it can take so many forms and cause so much hurt. Maybe this is why so many like fantasy, because in the world of fiction the lines are easy to see, the enemy easily spotted and he can be defeated. Words of wisdom, truly. Too often personal ambition or fear stand in the way of those good deeds that creates some hope and light in a darkening world.

Myself, not a real lover of poetry, but this was nice, short, simple, easy to read, and not so deep that I didn't know what you were talking about. You've got tension here. I can feel the heaviness, the weight of the poem, feel the weight the person is carrying, despair. You spend most of the lines in giving the possiblity evil may never be overcome, but in the end give the reader hope and make it uplifting.
Seriously, though, how much of a let down would it be if the bad guys won? If Sauron beat the Host? If the Decepticons beat the Autobots? If the joker beat Batman?
I'm sorry, I like happy endings. It reinforces our belief that good will always prevail over those who do evil... and I sort of think that it does. Call it Karma or whatever, those who do bad things will get there's one way or another, you know.
I always envy people who can write poetry. So few words with so much meaning.

Author's Response: Thank you. Yes, it is very heavy, I was going through a very dark time when I wrote this. I love your questioning if evil winning would really be bad. I also believe, like you do, that you get what you give. In his book "The Art of War" Tsung Tzu said, "if I sit by the river long enough, the bodies of my enemies will come floating by." The hardest lesson I have learned is how to sit by the river and wait. BTW I HATE poetry. Don't read it, don't teach it unless I have to. But everything just poured out of me that night. Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
