I am actually hoping to start a thread that stays at the top of the Blank Canvas, like we have "What happened to you Today" at the start of the main category.
The purpose of this thread is so that we can post the songs, poems, short stories and other small bits of word related art that don't require their own individual thread.
Here is a small song I wrote, thinking from the perspective of a population that was destroyed back when humans were first unleashed upon Sapience.
Can you hear it, the voice of the slain.
Can you feel it, the emotion of the dead.
Refusing to bow, Thus ended our reign.
Pride wasn’t enough, Silence echoes in our stead.
Can you see it, the beauty of what once was.
Can you taste it, the glory of our last stand.
Now only history knows, the justness of our cause.
Now only bones remain, Scattered throughout the land.
Can you sense it, the story in the rubble.
Can you believe it, the faith in our actions.
An entire civilization, Lost in times of trouble.
A whole philosophy, now just warning captions.
Can you answer it, the question lingering on my mind.
Can you sing it, the song that we left behind
Does it measure up, the costs of standing firm combined.
Remind all of the world, the folly of resisting mankind
