The Oracles Foretold

by Miles E.

They say, “The pen is mightier than the sword”,
But it is only those that wield the sword that may,
Leave behind the markings of their pens,
For there are a thousand stories,
But the victors ensure only theirs are told
It is as the ancient Oracles foretold,
If the kingdom falls, the fire of remembrance runs cold,
For out of all the heroes that once walked the Earth,
How many have their stories told?
If you had the misfortune of being on the wrong side of history,
The circumstances of your demise are shrouded in mystery
It is as the ancient Oracles foretold,
Everyone that falls is remembered no more.





Miles E. is a senior in his high school and likes to dabble with poetry pieces and short stories. Furthermore, he’s also been trying to teach himself songwriting. He is a big lover of cats and wishes to be able to live by himself someday with only feline company.
