A Warrior Waits


Beneath the gray sky and barren trees
Isolated snowflakes drift in the breeze
Silent as can be…
Beneath the gray sky and barren trees
A warrior waits…

In a vast field of flowers and tall grasses
Quiet and still a forfeit to the masses
Still as can be…
In a vast field of flowers and tall grasses
A warrior waits…

On a desolate dry and dusty desert
Calm as death  below a radiant sun
Secluded as can be…
On a desolate dry and dust desert
A warrior waits…

Within an old, abandoned home
Where rodents and roaches roam
Sinister as can be…
Within an old, abandoned home
A warrior waits…

Behind the concrete, past the plastic
Beyond the glass, above the sick
Swaddled as can be…
Behind the concrete, past the plastic
Two warriors wait…to go home
