View Full Version : Poems from the FF Marathon

A story of 4 bearing crystals of light
A tale of courage and might
Many nameless people saved on the way
Although everyone has a thing to say

The first story of a group of adventurers
Although the line of time blurs
A humble start from the beginning
The story from there starts spinning

From land to land traveled
Many things help the evil be unraveled
Magic, swords, armor and others untold
The first of many, an epic does unfold

A story of magic abuse
Which seems like the start of Doc Suess
14 people brought together
Differant stories, lifes, even differant weather

Terra the girl with almost no past
Everything seems to happen so fast
Born with magic and few memories remain
So many decisions and wrought with pain

Locke the "treasure hunter" of the world
The women around his finger seem curled
Acquirer of items and loot from monsters
Although he can't steal much from lobsters

Edgar the king who thinks he's smooth
So bad at what he does he should have lost a tooth
But good with tools and quick thinking
I only wish he'd do less winking

Sabin the man of steel
Held up a house totally for real
But if thats enough to boggle your brain
The dude totally suplexed a train

Celes the woman of ice
As you might guess she doesn't seem very nice
A general of the empire who turned her back
This brought from her new freinds a lot of flak

Shadow the man in the dark
Working with him is no walk in the park
A dog that bites, and a cold demeanor
His money wants will take you to the cleaner

Cyan the samurai of the group
Somehow he seems the most out of the loop
His family killed in a devious way
Somehow though his sanity does stay

Gau the feral young man
Possibly the most annoying in a short span
Unusually strong yet always famished
To the veldt he will be banished

Setzer the man of the skies
He commands the best airship that flies
A man of luck and gambling
Although for some reason has no bling

Mog the moogle of unfathomable dance
Each time I see him I go into a trance
So cute and fuzzy he's so win
Just thinking about it makes my head spin

Strago the eldest of anyone here
You would think theres nothing to fear
Learned from monsters he can throw spells
Although he won't be pulling up water from wells

Relm perhaps the youngest and cutest there
Can paint you perfectly down to what you wear
So life like you might wonder what happened
When you get beat up by your close friend

Umaro the yeti so unpredictable
Something you would think just a fable
Faster stronger bigger and really dumb
He could probably break me with his thumb

Last but not least is Gogo the Mime
But how would he make this rhyme
By looking at me and copying of course
I would have to stop him by force

The long cast of characters, or at least the most good
I wish there was more under the hood
A great cast all well made
I wish I could make better but I'm not being paid

Uh, I could use the edit button, but would that, or would that not mess with the continuity of the posts people may or may not make? Its not like adding a post is going to break anything especially in a forum where the post count isn't even counted.

Great poems, but there is an edit button to add on to your post.

Use it next time.

The wind begins to slow and a king gets ready
As he mounts his draogn he holds steady
The wind crystal is dying and he must hurry
He must save the crystal before the old evils fury

The daughter worries, a meteorite strikes nearby
A young man investigates on a chocobo that can't fly
The young girl under attack, an old man knocked out
The young man beats the monsters in one bout

A journey they start to reach the wind shrine
They reach a cave with no sign
Pirates within and a boat to sail on
Also the 4th member posing as a young man, but really a woman

The wind shrine reached and the floors explored
The boss knocked out the treasure stored
The wind crystal shrine room is beyond this door
But alas the crystal is shattered and is no more

All hope is not lost however, the crystals decide
Sending their essence to the parties along for the ride
The party become the chosen four to save everyone
A long story, full of twists, and lots of fun

A Group of four which you can choose
Battles of more, which you could lose
A path of light which paves the way
Opportunities to take, which you may
Fight to restore the kingdoms light
Fight with passion, with strength and might

Not the best poem, but I made it up as I was going along because I wanted to contribute something to this thread :)

Drew, in this forum it's ok to double post. Especially after a long period of time when you wish to add more. Granted, there wasn't a very long period of time in between the first two posts, but it's still ok. And I for one don't really care about people's post counts anyway. It's just a number. Quality over quantity.


Snipa: "Also the 4th member posing as a young man, but really a woman" This line doesn't really flow real well. IDK if you really take suggestions or criticisms and I don't want to sound like a mean person though...... :# (maybe something like "The owner joined, posing as a man?")

Samurai: That's ok, it's cute. Could almost be a riddle if it weren't so informative. ;)

I've got to hand it to you, these poems are awesome. Glad to see that so many people put time and effort into this cause!

07-21-2009, 11:32 PM
Yea that one didn't flow quite right but there wasn't much I could do about it. When I do a poem it sort of just happens, and if I try and go back and fix things, it makes it worse sadly. Usually much worse.

A poem I made about Atomos, the boss in FF1 that guards the door to Omega and Shinryu (I believe), he is the only enemy I had trouble with, I had a level 45 party (Fighter, Fighter, Red Mage, Red Mage) (they were upgraded classes) and I couldn't beat him, now my save data is erased and I have 3 Fighters and 1 Red Wizard.

A being of darkness full of hate
You'll try and try, you'll stay up late
dodging his one-hit-kills and cheap tricks
wondering which one; he will pick
then he sucks them up and spits them out
you watch in awe as you shout

07-23-2009, 05:45 PM
oh really? the opposite happens with me. o_O I should find the one I wrote about Shadow and post it here. I made it like...two years ago?

Samuraiiuk: hahahaha.......wow XD
