Joseph Mayo Wristen - Voices in the Night

I am the Raven
con of the world
spirit of blood and mire;
signal to the death,
the awakening before the coming.

I am the Owl
a reincarnation of a fed Rat
a wise soul searching - loving;
I find youth during their revelation,
and then take the responsibility,
of explaining away the exodus.

And I, I am the Hawk
guardian of the son
I bring the eye to battle;
searching wanting - warning,
the families of Lightning and of the Bear.

We shall be there when both Demons
and Angels together come to earth 
do battle with man.

I am the Sparrow
the breath of heaven
I bring the desires of our Mother 
and ask for you; to take care 
of her belongings, her creatures.
I am the Bear from the family, before man
I will crush mans enemies
then selectively bind those
who would change the world; 
to the ways of the White Witch.

And I, I am Lightning
I will strike down the madness
destroy the enemies of the Bear;
I am the weapon, of the most secure
Angel of our Lord.

We shall be here when both Demons
and Angels together come to do battle 
with man.

And I am the Eye,
knowing of what must be done
to save man from destroying;
the faith of his One God.

Together we take the hour
of silence, form our armies.
Karma leading the way;
we reach out to the night.
Changing mans destiny, 
crushing the selfishness 
of blinded destruction;
Working the sphere of time; Risking all.

It is our destiny to be here 
when both Demons and Angels
come together to do battle with Man.

Hear our voices; listen to our words,
the songs of  her love.
In the breath of the world.

The Voices In The Night.

These creatures of Mother Earth seem to represent facets of human nature which is bazaar and complex. The battle hopefully will be won by Angels.

To me this poem represents the struggle of our life on this earth and the ongoing pushing and pulling of our human nature. It provokes thoughtfulness, which is necessary to to thinking and weighing what we do.
