UNITED DEFIANCE

UNITED DEFIANCE

UNITED DEFIANCE

To come crashing through the gates of hell,

look the demon in the eye and casually yell!

Total defiance in every breath

as you stare down into the dungeons of death.

 

Never before have you shaken my goals

or been allowed entrance to the heart my soul.

Your presence presents mean unwanted gift,

one to be resisted, cast out, set adrift.

 

I am the master of all that is mine,

the cautious captain of a ticking time-line.

I say what I will and I go where I must,

I live with the righteous, the proud and the just.

 

I will never concede to oppression or tyranny,

nor hide behind hands from your evil and infamy.

Instead I stand tall and proudly defend

my right to decide how the story will end.

 

Freedom from terror, dictators of fear,

the right to defend all the things I hold dear.

The right to say “No, you will not destroy

all the love and security I’ve built from a boy!”

 

The right to speak out against injustice and crime,

to defend our world against those who defile.

Protect our lands from the enemy within

who seek to destroy, as new evil begins.

 

I will never acceded to foreign rule,

nor live my life like a broken fool.

I will never bow to terror and hate

but will always defend and strengthen the gate.

 

We live in a great and glorious land,

we never surrender to invading hands.

I’ll defend her borders from without and within,

with my dying breath, I will never give in.

 

Proud citizens, a call to your hearts I now make,

stand tall, stand proud and be fully awake for

your nation needs you to fight for her heart,

defend it from those who would tear it apart.

 

Our forefathers died to defend what is ours,

to keep all our enemies away from our shores.

Let not their sacrifice ever be in vain,

together we must make our nations great again.

 

So shout it out from hill and dale,

a rousing cry for we cannot fail.

Defend our nations from insidious demise,

let our children not fear to open their eyes.

 

Unity is the only key,

unite to live amongst the free.

 

Unite as one unstoppable force,

unite along an unswerving course.

 

Unite to stand and form a wall,

unite to defend our nations call!

Darren Scanlon was born in 1965 and still lives in Lancashire in the English Northwest.

"We at High On Poems are blessed to have found such a treasure as you in our midst. Your poetry is thought provoking and shakes one up. You obviously are a powerful wielder of words!"



His work to date includes:

Hey Up, Matron! His debut novel which is a laugh-out-loud, roller-coaster ride through a day in the life of a NHS hospital ward from the point of view of the long-suffering patients and based on his own real-life experiences.
