Mercy ( By Black Enigma)

Poem by: Black Enigma

Summary

After a long while I wrote a poem so to be frank I do not know how well I wrote and I guess it will be weak compared to my other stuff. But criticism is appreciated. So to the story…it’s about a father in distress and he just doesn’t know what to do. He simply wants to die. So pleads that mercy on him and the angel of death take him away. But his daughter tells him to hang on. She is going through great pain as well and wants her father to know that without his support she too will die. She pleads to him that have mercy on her and sleep in her arms; his little angel. And so the father moved by his daughter’s love for him makes a choice that he has to be there for his daughter as she has been there for him. His pain fades and he finds hope and so does she. I choose the father daughter relationship because what I have seen in my life is that this relation can either be so pure that it is angelic and on the other hand be so badly abused that it seems a work of a devil. So if any father or daughter reads my poem please be there for another. This love is more pure than any you will ever know.

Troubles seem to follow
Night and day
Where do I go now?
Is all I say
Well, I don’t know
What path to walk on
Don’t know where my road lays
 
Every breath
I burden I take
Can’t go on
Want to sleep in my grave
But can I be sure?
This pain will go
When I start to fade
 
Mercy! Mercy!
Weary feet and scarred heart
Mercy! Mercy!
Take me in your arms
O sweet angel, o sweet angel
Take me in your arms
 
“Don’t give up!”
I hear her say
As she wraps me
In her amazing grace
O daughter how can you know
The winter will slow
And I will smile in the shade
 
“Father, O guardian
Look at this face
These moist eyes
Drenched in pain
But do you know
It will break my soul
To see you fall away!”
 
“Mercy! Mercy!
On this timid heart
Mercy! Mercy!
Sleep in my fragile arms
My angel, my angel
Sleep in my fragile arms”
 
“Yes, I am weak
Too little to carry your weight
But o father
Dragged with you, forever, is your Grace
And if you go
And knock on heaven’s door
Behind the veil you’ll find my face”
 
The scarred heart beats again
Fading is all the pain
In my little angel’s arms
In my little angel’s arms
I find hope again
 
“The timid heart beats again
It always lived with your name
My angel in my arms
My angel in my arms
I find hope again”
