Brave and Free?

Make way to massacre 

Those pilgrims steps became 

Such muddied glory

Tales of many woes

Their unified story 

Make those younger 

Embittered by greed

Love lust of bloodied and bruised 

Make way to massacre 

The origins of a new world 

Hidden are the true

Broken are the brave 

Pilgrims lust of bloodied slaves

Make way for falsehoods 

Many braves ahead they stood

Myths and legends history told

Pilgrims voyage where lies unfold 

Bitter are their tounges 

Spite are their words

When light of truths

Comes round 

A pilgrims falsehoods will be heard

    'Broken are the brave
    Pilgrims lust of bloodied slaves
    Make way for falsehoods
    Many braves ahead they stood
    Myths and legends history told

      Thank you for your kind words. This poem did indeed come effortlessly, I write as I feel, like a story already written in my head and It has to come out with waves of emotion, ripples of time are fluid I would imagine. We have to be at ease with our poems if not readers will not feel as I. Thank you
