On Honor and Glory - Poetry Contest - August 4th - 11th

CONTEST OVER

This game is centered around the 2 marks of honor and glory. These are two incredibly complex and deep concepts.

The best way to convey meaning through words is to use poetry.
I will be submitting my own work but I am ineligible to win.

To participate in this thread, write a short poem on what is Honor and Glory and what it means to you. I will select a winner at the end of the timeframe.

TIPS FOR THE POEM:
Make it mean something to you. I want to see real emotion - What does being in GGS help you with - Why do you play here as opposed to other games?

Remember, poems can be rhythmic and not rhyme.

Swearing is a guaranteed way to lose the contest.
- Note -
If you are viewing this thread after the end date, feel free to add to the poems with your own work.

    Hey, all! This contest has come to an end! The next contest is here! With that, I would like to announce a few honorable mentions and then the champion poem!

    Honorable mention and Second places goes to The Dark Angel for a very inspired work.

    The Winner is...

    Wendyl006 with a poem that conveys real, rich emotion.
    The days are long with real world issues
    The kids have rode that nerve and I need tissues.
    I come home after seeing the real world vets
    and am humbled by their their lack of regret
    They have gone and fought so I can sit here at night
    playing a game that gives me delight
    I think of them often and all they have gave
    knowing inside...I am not that brave
    Here I can be what ever I choose
    knowing that battles I can always loose
    I try to be a friend that someone may need
    in that moment that someone else might not see
    I will always be there to cover your back
    whether you are here or will be right back
    To fight with honor means to stand for all others
    and to win with glory
    is like pride for a mother
    I come here to play to get a break away
    and dont really care what others may say
    This is my time and how I will spend it
    defending my alliance is all there is to it.

    I think really hard,
    block out all distraction,
    focusing on glory,
    a concept lost in abstraction.

    and honor as well,
    lost and out of focus,
    a word which has forgotten,
    a system that broke us.

    The words have meaning,
    obscured by society,
    but deep in our being,
    we can find out inner piety.

    Honor and glory,
    locked in combat?
    or one in the same?
    I'll let you ponder that.

    In Berimond i went to play
    To gain Honor this very day
    twas fighting and cussing
    but no honor was i getting

    So today i realized
    I was not to get my prize
    but then i was told this story
    instead of honor go for glory

    So i set of to gain my glory
    but atlas it is still eluded me like a mystery
    so to obtain my Honor I should not have bothered
    because winning great battles, honor and glory were both covered

    Glory, Praise, and Honor
    Be upon our minds, lips and hearts
    For ever and ever!

    O Father, thank you and Praise you
    For every Gift you lovingly give;
    May Glory, Praise, and Honor, too
    Be on our lips for as long as we live!

    When I am tired and weary
    Whining and teary
    Bemoaning my fate of late,
    Help me to see it's not about me
    But about my neighbor
    Through whom Thee I see.

    Bless my neighbor with all that is needed;
    Permit me to provide it if possible.
    Let no word you speak to me go unheeded
    And all required of me be plausible.

    Permit me to be an emissary for you
    Someone who carries out your will;
    May the words I say and deeds I do
    Your most Holy Will fulfill.

    It isn't easy to always tow the line
    Who knows better than you, my Lord,
    Who bore our sin, your Cross the sign
    Upon us may your graces be poured.

    O Father, thank you and Praise you
    For every Gift you lovingly give;
    May Glory, Praise, and Honor, too
    Be on our lips for as long as we live!

    Glory, Praise, and Honor
    Be upon our minds, lips and hearts
    For ever and ever!

    To fight hard
    We all sought
    To have troops
    All for naught

    Playing a game
    Is in our interest

    Ok enough with this honor.
    We're just wasting our time acting like we are getting it.
    I can't hold it in any longer.
    I started off by honoring you in my mind, then we proceeded to glory attacking, slowly moving down to each other's private areas(Main Castles duh).
    You were getting pretty heated at this point (fires)
    I don't know if you were thinking straight but you told me to send my D at you.
    I asked you where you wanted it and you said,"In my belly button(Obviously another Main Castle Reference), trudge through it with your D and act out the D-day invasion for glory."
    Now I'm sitting here with my D in hand curious to what that might be like.
    So if you're down to put our own spin on this momentous historical event I can swing by your outpost on the way over.
    Are we going to pound this thing out for honor and glory or are you going to let my Womb Warriors die another meaningless death at the hands of my Foreign Invaders.

    A story of honor,
    told by my father.

    It starts with a man who fled and ran,
    Oh the disgrace he was in, even disowned by kin.
    His story is short, but don't retort,
    for his life leads a role, and hope for stricken souls.

    He led many battles, riding on saddle,
    And fought many wars, that will soon be tours.
    One day a challenge, from another with talent,
    a fight of honor, verse a man named Connor.

    And as the days went, it came closer to the event,
    But with time he spied, and cunningly lied,
    To learn of the man, that still had not ran.

    He began to wonder, and he began to sunder,
    And scared as he was, he did not run because,
    He had honor, and glory to uphold.

    And soon they were to fight, but threats arrived,
    His family was to die, it made him cry.
    Demands were simple, annoying as a pimple,
    Lose the match, with only a scratch.

    And then they battled, they were up and saddled,
    but one did not fight, although he had might.
    And the battle was lost, it was a large cost,
    but his family lived, and that is what he wished.

    He ran and ran,
    cried and cried,
    sighed and sighed...

    And he pondered, questioned, the next sequention,
    and began to believe, he chose to leave.
    He returned to his kingdom, not loved, no freedom.

    He visited his family, his love numerous and amply.
    Next he walked, not to the throne, but to the soldiers, where he was most known.
    He did not talk, and yet did not stalk, and was on his way, by the middle of the day.

    By nightfall his gaze met the Palace walls,
    escorted by many, although he carried nothing but a penny.
    Doors swung open, and soon the throne lay before him.

    He bowed down his head, and cried for mercy,
    for this man had truly, become unruly.
    He conquered his goal, and mastered his questions,
    For true honor and glory, come not from fighting,
    but the cause of the fight, or possibly, even the loss.

    And though this man may be a goner, he leaves us to ponder....
    What is true Honor?

    A story of honor,
    Told by my father

    *Swears* I was planning to do the same thing.

    Honour = dead soldiers
    Glory = dead soldiers.
    Honour + Glory = more dead soldiers.

    It looks like GGE has irreversably damaged their game, and we the customers suffer the consequences. God comm owners aren't happy, fire cast users could be happier, and the rest of us see the wrongs GGE has caused for some of their best customers.
