The King

The King

In a golden wheat field he worked all day long
The boy who smiled no matter summer or fall
Content with whatever life brought on the way
His world was euphoric until he heard the call

On horseback flocking from all over the town
Seeking the true holder of that majestic ring
The Men roared and grabbed hold of the boy
Bowed down and screamed you are our King

Astonished, shocked and slightly bewildered
He screamed aloud I am not the one you seek
I am just an ordinary boy who toils in the field
For this grandeur and chair I am just too weak

But he was taken against his pleading and cries
Like as if his anointment was written in stone
Wrapped in a Silver robe, the ring in his hand
The boy, the King, mighty owner of the throne

So with the days of past engraved in his mind
Moments when he so wanted his heart to sing
My kingdom will be just the best in the world
And the whole country cried long live the king

And then his reign started with valor and zest
For he had to establish his hold on the crown
Imposed taxes, waged wars, held an iron fist
Spared none conquered each city every town

Now no man was allowed to do as he pleased
And soon all realized what deed they had done
Lamented on the fact they had to follow rules
They wished a king their choice the chosen one

So now they decided that the moment is here
What seemed whispers soon became the shout
We don’t want the king down with the throne
The royal palace was invaded the king was out

Standing in wilderness the king saw the moon
The boy the loner who was made an utter fool
Vowed in his heart that one day he will return
For what else is there for a king to do but rule

 

 

I leave it to my readers how they perceive this story of the boy…… whats your take on it ?

  1. First of all, I observed the change in your writing style. Composing paragraphs, each containing four lines. Somewhere I also like this style because it gives a well defined meaning to context. The rhyming scheme perfectly fits in. Every second line rhyming with the fourth one.
    Next, this story of a simple ,Lonesome guy facing the abrupt change to become The Ruler gives a nice ” adventure effect”. With solid principles , he tries to re-establish his territory. Ellicitly, you have given the justification that people disapprove of the king as soon as he puts a stop to their selfish purposes. The boy has a beautiful dream. To put things right, to make his land a better place. Sadly, his ideals were unsupported!
    the boy watching the moon, giving way to his thoughts is a wonderful line .
    Excellent, I say πŸ™‚
    give us more of such creations πŸ™‚

    1. I get bored with one writing style so i like to try my hand in almost every thing there is 1 line, two lines, three lines , haiku you name it…. its like exploring a whole new universe of possibilities in expression. You have summarized the poem brilliantly Maryam πŸ™‚ , i wrote it with the thought of the place people give to an individual even if its what he/she don’t want and when they are on that level they just bring them down, now that individual who lost and changed just to fit him or herself for that position comes back to where he/she was before and its the human nature to wish or crave for thing or place one was before weather its power or love, i just tried to express this human predicament in a metaphorical way πŸ™‚

  2. Creative Brilliance! A profound message is beautifully embedded. People tailor us according to their needs but our inner strength should not be swaying to others’ tunes. One need not fit into others’ frames…..it is not meant for us and hence we find no peace or contentment in such a fit. One does not become a ruler just because other people say so. We should be knowing what we are. Until and unless we realize what we are, people will continue to define us in varied refined ways. Again, it is choice….. one can be happy in ones own form…..or else just misfits.

    Thanks for the link, Akhiz. I love this. Stay Blessed!
